Your system administrator must enable some of the features described in this guide (for example,
retrieving voice-mail messages using e-mail, configuring voice-mail notifications, or using live reply).
If you are unable to access a feature, contact your system administrator to ensure the function is enabled
on your system.
Cisco Unity Express is subject to an erroneous login limit as set by your system administrator.
There are two types.
•
There may be a limit on the number of incorrect consecutive logins allowed, after which the system
administrator is required to restore the user’s login rights.
•
Depending on the configuration by your system administrator, login may be temporarily disabled
for the user for a time period after several consecutive unsuccessful log in attempts.
If a Cisco Unity Express voice-mail session is in progress, a second session for the same user cannot be
initiated. This does not apply to voice-mail sessions that are initiated by an Internet Message Access
Protocol (IMAP) client, such as Microsoft Office Outlook.
•
If you initiate a voice-mail session by using your Cisco Unified IP phone to call your voice-mail
system, attempting to log in to VoiceView Express cannot preempt the voice-mail session.
•
If you are logged in to VoiceView Express, using your Cisco Unified IP phone to call your
voice-mail system preempts the VoiceView Express session. The VoiceView Express session is
automatically logged out without notification.
•
If you are logged in to VoiceView Express, logging in to a second VoiceView Express session from
a different phone preempts the first session. The first VoiceView Express session is automatically
logged out without notification.

VoiceView Express has an inactivity timeout parameter, after which the VoiceView Express session is
automatically logged out without notification.
•
If you are logged in to VoiceView Express using your Cisco Unified IP phone and you receive an
incoming call, the call information appears on the phone display. Lifting the handset or pressing the
Headset or Speaker button connects the call. Depending on which Cisco Unified IP phone you have,
you can return to the VoiceView Express session if the call is terminated before the session is ended
by the inactivity timeout parameter. Otherwise, the VoiceView Express session will be automatically
logged out without notification. For more information, see the user’s guide for your
Cisco Unified IP phone. See

conversation. This function is available when listening to new, saved, or deleted voice messages from
subscribers or from non-subscribers where caller ID is available.
To access the live reply function, press 44 (4 pressed twice) on the dial pad while listening to the
message. Cisco Unity Express attempts to establish a call to the message sender. Depending on the
identifying information contained in the message, you will hear a prompt with some or all of the
following: “calling <spoken name> at extension <calling number> at <remote location identifier>.”
Note
If you activate this function, you will not be returned to your voice-mail session on termination of the
call. You must redial your voice mail access number.

Managing Fax Messages
Managing Fax Messages
Cisco Unity Express can receive and process faxes through the voice-mail system. Faxes can be
forwarded, marked as new, saved, deleted, and undeleted similarly to regular voice messages.
Additionally, you can send fax messages from a mailbox to a local fax machine for printing.
Supported IMAP clients can receive faxes as a .tif file attachment to an e-mail. The IMAP clients allow
subscribers to download the message and save the fax attachment to a local workstation where it can be
viewed and printed using standard .tif readers.
You must compose and send a fax from an analog fax machine. You cannot compose a fax through the
Cisco Unity Express voice-mail system.
If your system administrator configures a dedicated extension for fax calls, these calls will not ring on a
subscriber’s extension. Your system administrator, however, may configure an extension that will receive
both fax and voice calls. In this case, when the subscriber picks up an incoming call that is a fax, an
identifier tone is heard. The system monitors for such tones and automatically sends the fax to the
designated mailbox and terminates the voice leg of the call.
Note
Your system administrator must enable the fax function on a mailbox and extension. The fax number
may be the same as the voice-mail extension of a subscriber or a dedicated fax extension may be
configured.
To manage fax messages:
Step 1
Dial in to the Cisco Unity Express system. The voice prompt summarizes how many new and saved
messages your have.
Step 2
Press 1 to listen to new messages.
The voice prompt identifies a fax in your mailbox and lists its properties, for example, the time and date
sent and the originating location. The voice prompt also indicates if a voice message is attached to the
fax.
Note
If the fax was forwarded from another subscriber, a voice message can be attached from the forwarding
subscriber.
Step 3
Select the fax.
Step 4

Accessing Setup Options
Greetings are messages that callers hear when they reach your voice mail. You can have the following
greetings:
•
Standard greeting—Normal greeting played to callers when they reach your voice mail. This can be
either the default system greeting or a greeting that you have recorded and chosen as your own
standard greeting.
•
Multiple Alternate greetings—Multiple alternate greetings are recorded by you and played to the
callers when they reach your voice mail. You can turn these greetings on or off using the voice-mail
menu. These greetings are used as an alternative to your standard greeting. Following are the
Multiple Alternate greetings:
– Alternate greetings—To record a special greeting (other than standard greeting).
– Meeting greeting—To record a greeting that plays when you are in a meeting.
– Vacation greetings—To record a greeting that plays during the time when you are on a Vacation.
– Extended Absence greetings—To record a greeting that plays during the time when you are
absent for an extended period of time. If extended absence greeting is turned on then mailbox
will not take messages from external callers or will not accept messages from subscribers.
•
State Based greetings—State based greetings are recorded by you and played to the callers
according to the state of your business. Following are the State Based greetings:
– Busy greeting—To record a that plays when you are busy. This greeting is played and it takes
precedence over standard, closed, and internal greetings if the subscriber is busy over the phone
and if this greeting is enabled. But if a multiple alternate greeting is enabled then it takes
precedence over busy greeting. Phone or call agent must provide the support necessary for Cisco
Unity Express to identify that the phone is busy and the call forward is on busy rather than on
no-answer.
– Closed greeting—To record a greeting that plays during non-business hours or hours past your
business hours. This greeting is played if it is not a business hour and if this greeting is enabled.
Business hours are based on the business schedule that is associated to Voicemail. If internal
greeting is enabled and if the call is during non-business hours then closed greeting is played
over standard greeting. But multiple alternate greeting, busy greeting and internal greeting takes
precedence over closed greeting.
– Internal greeting—To record a greeting that plays when you receive a call from an internal
extension number.

What to Do When Receiving Notifications by Phone
When you receive a call from Cisco Unity Express notifying you of a voice-mail message, you can:
•
Enter 1 to turn off voice-mail notification to this phone number. If you disable notification, the
system sends you a voice-mail message to tell you that notification is turned off.
•
Enter your extension and PIN to check your voice-mail messages. (This feature must be enabled by
your system administrator.)
•
If the notification is part of a notification cascading rule, you can:
– Press 1 to reject the notification to your number or device. Your notification profile is changed
to reflect this.
– Press 2 to disable cascade notification function from this subscriber. A notification is sent to the
sender of the notification that cascade notification is disabled for your extension.
Recording a Live Conversation
On receipt of a call, you can initiate the live record function to record the conversation. The recorded
conversation is stored as a message in your mailbox and you can access and manage it similarly to
ordinary messages. The recording function can only be initiated by a subscriber at the subscriber’s
extension location.
Caution
See disclaimer statement relating to recording a conversation: DISCLAIMER FOR RECORDING A
CONVERSATION, page 49.
To record a conversation:
Step 1
Note
Step 2
While in your conversation, press the conference (Confrn) button. The current conversation is put on

Note
This feature is not available on all systems. Contact your system administrator.
You can set up Cisco Unity Express to deliver your voice-mail messages to an e-mail program. You must
use a standard IMAP e-mail client. Your voice-mail messages are sent to your e-mail program as an
e-mail file attachment in .wav file format. The file can be played with a media player such as Microsoft
Windows Media Player.
The following e-mail programs are supported:
Note
•
IBM Lotus Notes (6.5, 6)
•
Microsoft Outlook (2003, 2002, 2000)
•
Microsoft Outlook Express 6.0

Receiving Voice-mail Messages in Your E-mail
After Receiving Voice-Mail Messages
After you receive voice-mail messages in your e-mail, you can perform the following actions:
Note
•
Listen to messages—Typically, you can double-click the .wav file message attachment to listen to it.
•
Change the status of a message—Mark a message as read or unread.
•
Delete messages—Mark a message as deleted in your inbox, which also moves it into the deleted
messages portion of your voice-mail system. Logging out of your e-mail client removes all deleted
messages in your e-mail mailbox.
Deleted messages must be purged to entirely remove the message from your system.
•
Undelete messages—Change the state of a message from deleted to saved and remove it from the
deleted message storage space. As long as deleted messages are not purged, you can undelete them.
•
Purge deleted messages—Remove deleted messages from your e-mail client and server.
Updating the status of a message in your e-mail program also updates the message status on the
voice-mail system. For example, marking a message as Read on your e-mail client will mark the message
as saved on the telephone voice-mail system, and turn off your message-waiting indicator light on your
phone if you have no other new messages.
Note
Not all of these actions may be supported by your e-mail program; see your e-mail program
documentation for more information.
Private Voice-Mail Messages
You can only download the headers, or summaries, of voice-mail messages that have been marked
“Private” by the sender. You must dial in to the voice-mail system to listen to the body of the private
voice-mail message.
Caution
Do not delete a private message from your Inbox before listening to it. Deleting the message in your
e-mail client deletes the actual voice-mail message from the system and you cannot listen to it.
Broadcast Messages
You can only download broadcast messages that you have previously listened to and saved through the
telephone voice-mail system. New broadcast messages are not downloaded to your e-mail program.

DISCLAIMER FOR RECORDING A CONVERSATION
The use of monitoring, recording, or listening devices to eavesdrop, monitor, retrieve, or record phone conversations or other sound activities,
whether or not contemporaneous with transmission, may be illegal in certain circumstances under federal, state and/or local laws. Legal advice should
be sought prior to implementing any practice that monitors or records any phone conversation. Some laws require some form of notification to all
parties to a phone conversation, such as by using a beep tone or other notification method or requiring the consent of all parties to the phone
conversation, prior to monitoring or recording the phone conversation. Some of these laws incorporate strict penalties. In cases where local laws
require a periodic beep while a conversation is being recorded, the Cisco Unity Express voice-mail system provides a user with the option of
activating "the beep." Prior to activating the Cisco Unity Express live record function, check the laws of all applicable jurisdictions. This is not legal
advice and should not take the place of obtaining legal advice from a lawyer. IN ADDITION TO THE GENERAL DISCLAIMER THAT
ACCOMPANIES THIS CISCO UNITY EXPRESS PRODUCT, CISCO ADDITIONALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, BOTH
CIVIL AND CRIMINAL, AND ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE UNAUTHORIZED AND/OR ILLEGAL USE OF THIS CISCO
UNITY EXPRESS PRODUCT. THIS DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT NECESSARILY LIMITED TO, THE
UNAUTHORIZED AND/OR ILLEGAL RECORDING AND MONITORING OF TELEPHONE CONVERSATIONS IN VIOLATION OF
APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE AND/OR LOCAL LAWS.
