You can use the IP Messaging Web Provisioning interface to manage IP
Messaging messaging options through a web browser.
To access the IP Messaging Web Provisioning interface:
1 In your web browser’s address bar, enter the URL for the IP Messaging
Web Provisioning interface.
2 In the Login dialog box, enter your username (or phone number) and
your telephone password.
3 Click Login.
The Message Information screen appears with the Main menu on the

2 To change your password:
a Type a new password in the Change Password field.
b Type the new password in the Confirm Password field.
c Click Save.
3 Enter or change your E-mail address in the Email Address field. This field
is optional.
By default, IP Messaging (IPM) constructs an e-mail address using a
subscriber’s mailbox number as the username. For example, for mailbox
number 1000, the e-mail address would be
1000@<IPM_hostname>.<DNS_domain> (or 1000@<IPM_IPaddress>).
Using the Web Interface
29
The Email Address field allows you to assign a more meaningful
username. In Figure 4, the default address (1000@MRO4C.widget.com)
is now peter_user1@MRO4C.widget.com. This is useful because IP
Messaging uses the value configured in the Email Address field when
constructing the From: field for e-mail retrieved by an e-mail client.
Note that an e-mail address entered in the Email Address field to

Notification
The Notification option enables you to set the medium that the system
will use to notify users when messages are deposited into or retrieved
from their mailboxes. IP Messaging supports many notification methods,
including NBX MWI (Message Waiting Indication) Voice, E-mail, Socket
Connection (SIP Notify), Auto-Forward and Pager notification methods.
You must perform three general steps to set up a notification method:
1 Create a notification filter.
2 Create a notification procedure by assigning a filter to a notification
method.
3 Enable a notification schedule for a filter, which automatically assigns the
schedule to any method that uses the filter.
These tasks are described in the next three sections.
The three Notification options appear on the Mailbox Options menu only
if your administrator has enabled notification for your mailbox.

Alias Configuration
Use the Alias Configuration feature to set up different numbers that are
associated with and point to your mailbox. This allows the system to
know your identity when you access the system from other media such as
a mobile phone, a fax, or a different e-mail address.
For example, you could have the following office phone, cell phone,
home phone, and a preferred e-mail address information:
■
12345 (office)
■
15554445562 (cell)
■
19996587234 (home)
■
myname@xyz.com (e-mail)
You configure the telephone numbers and the e-mail address as aliases of
your IP Messaging (for example, mailbox number 5678). Consequently, all
voice mails for the office, cell, and home phone numbers, and e-mail for
the specified address, are associated with mailbox 5678. You can retrieve
messages from any configured alias using regular mailbox features like
password, personal greeting, and auto login. If you do not change these
settings, the default settings apply (those used for the parent mailbox).

CHAPTER 3: USING MESSAGING FEATURES
Overview
This chapter describes how to use IP Messaging messaging features.
These features allow you to listen to and send messages, and place
outside calls (if enabled by your administrator). You can also use the IP
Messaging Web Provisioning interface to view information about new
and saved messages.
There are three ways to access IP Messaging messages and information
about those messages:
Listening to
Messages
■
You can use the TUI on your telephone to listen to new or saved
messages in your mailbox. These messages include voice, e-mail, and
fax notification. You can also make calls to external numbers, if this
feature has been enabled by your administrator. These topics are
discussed in this chapter.
■
You can use the IP Messaging Web Provisioning interface to view
information about messages in your mailbox. You can view the
number of new and saved messages of each message type, as well as
the number of unreviewed and urgent messages. See Using the Web
Interface to View Message Information.
■
You can use a third-party application, such as Microsoft Outlook, to
access messages in your mailbox. See Using an E-Mail Application to
View Messages.
To listen to messages:
1 From the Main menu, press [1].
2 To hear a summary of this menu, press [0].
3 Follow the prompts to listen to new, saved, or deleted messages.
4 Follow the prompts to: review, save, delete, reply to, forward (with and
without a recorded comment), replay, pause, fast forward, or skip the

Using an E-Mail
Application to View
Messages
You can use a third-party application (Microsoft Outlook Express,
Microsoft Outlook or IBM Lotus Notes) to access messages in your
mailbox.
■
A voice message appears as a .wav file attachment in an e-mail
message. You can listen to the .wav file on any media player.
■
A fax message appears as .tif file attachment in an e-mail message.
You can open the .tif file in a graphics application and send it to a
printer.
When you or your administrator create an account in the third-party
e-mail application, you or the administrator must:
■
Specify the protocol used by the e-mail application to access the IP
Messaging system:
■
POP3 — The Post Office Protocol, version 3, retrieves e-mail
messages from a mail server.
52
CHAPTER 3: USING MESSAGING FEATURES
■
IMAP — The Internet Message Access Protocol is also used to
retrieve e-mail messages from a mail server but includes some
features not supported by POP3.
■
Associate a mailbox with the e-mail account.
■
Identify a third party server as your outgoing SMTP (Simple Mail
Transfer Protocol) e-mail server.
The remaining sections in this chapter provide general information on
configuring an e-mail account and how to work with e-mail messages
forwarded from an IP Messaging mailbox to an associated e-mail
account.
POP3 E-Mail
Applications
Follow these general steps to create an e-mail account in an application
that uses POP3 (ask your administrator for the specific information
required in your IP Messaging environment).
■
Create an account in your e-mail application that points to an IP
Messaging mailbox.
■
Set the incoming mail server (POP3) to be the IP Messaging DNS
domain name.
■
Configure IP Messaging as your outgoing server (SMTP), or configure
a third party server.
Once a message is downloaded to the e-mail account, it is marked
reviewed in the IP Messaging mailbox. If you do not configure the e-mail
account with a leave-message-on-server option (in Outlook Express, this
is the Leave copy of message on server option), the message is also
marked deleted and removed from the IP Messaging mailbox after the
configured retention time.
Sending Messages
Your IP Messaging administrator must identify a third-party SMTP server
to send, forward, or reply to e-mail messages. You can then configure this
server in your e-mail application as the SMTP server.
Optionally, your administrator can identify IP Messaging as the SMTP
server. However, this configuration limits the exchange of e-mail
messages to IP Messaging subscribers; you cannot send or forward
messages to external addresses, or reply to e-mail messages from external
addresses.
Using an E-Mail Application to View Messages

Retrieving Messages Using POP3
When your e-mail account receives a message from your IP Messaging
mailbox that contains a fax or voicemail attachment, the message uses
the following format:
■
Subject: — The subject field specifies the type of message, either
“Voice Message”, “Fax Message”, or “Voice and Fax Message”.
■
From: — The From: field contains sender@IPM_domain/IPM_IP. Use
your e-mail application’s menu options to view additional information,
for example caller-id or the mailbox number of sender.
■
To: — The To: field contains Your_Mailbox@IPM_domain/IPM_IP.
Replying to Messages
If you reply to an e-mail message in your inbox that was downloaded
from your IP Messaging mailbox, a copy of your reply is stored in your
local “Sent Items” folder. However, your local “Sent Items” folder is not
synchronized with your IP Messaging mailbox.
You can reply to the following message types:
■
Any e-mail message that has valid From: e-mail address
■
Any voice or fax message sent from other IP Messaging mailboxes or
from e-mail accounts within the IP Messaging system
■
Any voice or fax message from an caller outside the IP Messaging
system whose e-mail address is in your Personal Address Book (PAB).
Replying to a message sent from an external phone number or
mailbox is possible if you have the sender's information, including
e-mail address, in your PAB. Otherwise, you cannot reply to the
message and the system generates the error message 451 ERROR,
unable to save/forward message.
Forwarding Messages
You can forward any message regardless of its source. A copy of the
forwarded message is stored in the “Sent Items” folder in your e-mail
application. The “Sent Items” folder is not synchronized with your IP
Messaging mailbox.
54
CHAPTER 3: USING MESSAGING FEATURES
Deleting Messages Using POP3
If you delete a message from your inbox, the message is moved to the
DELETED folder in your e-mail application. The DELETED folder is not
synchronized with your IP Messaging mailbox.
Moving Messages to Another Folder Using POP3
If you move a message from one folder to another, the folders are not
synchronized with your IP Messaging mailbox.
IMAP E-Mail
Applications
Follow these general steps to create an e-mail account in an application
that uses IMAP (ask your administrator for the specific information
required in your IP Messaging environment).
■
Create an account in your e-mail application that points to an IP
Messaging mailbox.
■
Set the incoming mail server (IMAP) to be the IP Messaging DNS
domain name. Your administrator should enable all the required IMAP
folders during IP Messaging mailbox configuration. All messages in all
folders are synchronized.
■
Identify a third party server as your outgoing SMTP (Simple Mail
Transfer Protocol) e-mail server.
Sending Messages
Your IP Messaging administrator must identify a third-party SMTP server
to send, forward, or reply to e-mail messages. You can then configure this
server in your e-mail application as the SMTP server.
Optionally, your administrator can identify IP Messaging as the SMTP
server. However, this configuration limits the exchange of e-mail
messages to IP Messaging subscribers; you cannot send or forward
messages to external addresses, or reply to e-mail messages from external
addresses.
Sending a Message in Outlook
When you use IP Messaging as an SMTP server to send a new message,
the sent message is saved in different places depending on how you
configure your Outlook e-mail account.
■
If your default e-mail account in Outlook is with Microsoft Exchange
server, the sent message is saved in the “Sent Items” folder of your
default e-mail account, which is the Microsoft Exchange e-mail
Using an E-Mail Application to View Messages

account, not in the IP Messaging “Sent Items” folder. The sent
message is not synchronized with the IP Messaging.
■
If your default e-mail account in Outlook is with the IP Messaging
server, the sent message is saved in “Sent Items” folder on your
Outlook “Personal Folders”, and not the IP Messaging “Sent Items”
folder. Sent message are not synchronized with the IP Messaging
server.
In each of these cases, you could manually move the sent message from
the “Sent Items” folder of your Outlook “Personal Folders’ or Exchange
server to the “Sent Items” folder of the IP Messaging server if required.
Any message in the IP Messaging “Sent Items” folder is synchronized
with the IP Messaging server.
Sending a Message in Outlook Express
When you use IP Messaging as an SMTP server to send a new message,
the sent message is saved in the “Sent Items” folder of IP Messaging and
always synchronized with the IP Messaging server.
Sending a Message in Lotus Notes
When you use IP Messaging as an SMTP server to send a new message,
the sent message is saved in different places depending on how you
configure your Notes e-mail accounts.
■
If your default e-mail account on Notes is with Domino server, the sent
message is saved in “Sent” folder of your default e-mail account,
which is the Domino server e-mail account, not saved in the IP
Messaging “Sent” folder.
■
If your default e-mail account on Notes is with the IP Messaging
server, the sent message is saved in the “Sent” folder of your Notes
local database. The “Sent” folder is synchronized with the IP
Messaging server.
Retrieving Messages Using IMAP
When your e-mail account receives a message from your IP Messaging
mailbox that contains a fax or voicemail attachment, the message uses
the following format:
■
Subject: — The subject field specifies the type of message, either
“Voice Message”, “Fax Message”, or “Voice and Fax Message”.
56
CHAPTER 3: USING MESSAGING FEATURES
■
From: — The From: field contains sender@IPM_domain/IPM_IP. Use
your e-mail application’s menu options to view additional information,

Find Me Follow Me
Overview
The FMFM feature enables you to control which callers can access you
and how these callers can access you by:
■
Allowing all incoming numbers to contact you
■
Allowing some incoming number to contact you
■
Preventing some incoming numbers from contacting you
■
Setting up destination telephone numbers
■
Recording a greeting for callers while the system tries to find you (TUI
only)
There are two variants of FMFM: basic and advanced.
Basic FMFM features can be configured through the TUI or the web
interface. Basic FMFM features include specifying who can contact you,
defining the numbers at which you can be reached, recording a greeting,
modifying the no answer timeout value, and enabling or disabling FMFM.
For this release, advanced FMFM features must be configured by your
administrator. Advanced FMFM features include setting rules and filters
that are activated based on defined events and priorities.
FMFM can be enabled as an independent feature (FMFM only) or an
add-on to your mailbox (FMFM and mailbox).
