Introduction
networkWCS Voice Mail provides you with voice messaging services. You
can have your calls redirected to your voice mail box, retrieve messages
left by callers and be alerted about new messages via your telephone and/
or your email inbox.
This User Guide describes the telephone interface for you to access and
manage your voice mailbox and access additional voice message services.
Accessing your Voice Mailbox
You can access your voice mailbox by pressing the Message key
(on the Mitel 5212, 5224, 5312, 5324, 5330, or 5340 IP phone) or a
programmed Voice Mail memory key (on the Mitel 5304 IP phone) and then
entering your passcode.
You can also access your voicemail by phoning your extension (provided it is
forwarded to your voicemail). When the voicemail greeting starts to play,
press the (*) key, then enter your passcode.
An auto attendant can also be configured to allow both deposit and retrieval of
your voice messages. If this is configured, call the auto attendant, then press
the key corresponding to voice mail access. You will then be prompted to
enter your extension and then your passcode.
Main Menu
When you first log into your voice mailbox networkWCSVoice Mail will tell
you the number of new and saved messages in your mailbox and then
present the “Main Menu”.
From this menu, you can choose to listen to messages or change your User

appropriate key on your phone.

Setting Up Your Mailbox
To start using networkWCS Voice Mail, you must first set up your mailbox
with a passcode, name recording, and greeting. Your passcode is a 4 to 10
digit code that ensures that only you (or those you designate) can log into
your mailbox and listen to the messages contained therein. Your name
recording is simply your name and it is used when other subscribers are
sending a message to you. Your greeting is what callers will hear when
leaving you a message.
Voice prompts will guide you through each of these steps.
To begin using networkWCS Voice Mail, press the Message button on
your telephone to connect to the voice mail system and begin the initial
setup of your voice mailbox. Use your initial passcode provided by your
Service Provider.

Greeting
Once you are satisfied with your name recording, you will be asked to choose

own greeting or you may use the system greeting. If you choose to record
your own greeting, networkWCS Voice Mail will ask you to record it after the
tone. It will playback your greeting after you record it and you will have the
option to keep the greeting or re-record it.
•
Press 1 to Keep the Greeting
•
Press 2 to Change the Greeting
If you choose the system greeting, callers will hear “You have reached {play
phone number or name recording}, please record a message after the tone.”
Passcode
Once you have chosen your greeting, you will need to change your passcode.
Please make sure to keep your passcode private. It is recommended that
you set this value to the same value as your networkWCS PIN in order to
make it easier to remember. Select a 4- to 10-digit number for your
passcode and enter those digits when prompted by the system.
networkWCS Voice Mail will repeat your passcode to confirm it.
•
Press 1 to Keep your Passcode,
•
Press 2 to Change your Passcode.
Congratulations! Your mailbox is now set up and ready for use. You may
change your passcode, name recording or greetings at any time from any
phone by selecting the User Options menu. Callers trying to reach you when
you do not answer will hear your recorded greeting and will be able to leave
you a message. You can check your messages and change your user
options at any time from any phone.
