The following options are available to you:
Setting Up Your Mailbox
When you sign in for the first time, you must set up your
mailbox. This can only be done from the phone that is
registered with your voicemail system. First-time sign-in
involves three steps:
• Creating your PIN.
• Recording your greeting.
• Recording your recorded name.
You may skip first-time sign-in once by pressing the *
key twice, but after skipping it once, you must complete
all three steps the next time you dial in to your voicemail
box . The greeting and recorded name are played each
time a caller accesses your mailbox to leave a message.
You can end the setup process at any point by ending
the call. If you do so, you are asked to complete the
remaining setup steps the next time you enter your mailbox.
Changing Your PIN
To secure your account, you must set up a new PIN. You
are first prompted to enter a new PIN, and then you are
asked to confirm it by re-entering it.
This is a very important step in keeping access to your
mailbox private. You should enter your new PIN the first
time you access your new mailbox.
Your PIN can be changed at any time by selecting Option
4 (Mailbox Settings) from the Main Menu, then selecting
Option 3 (Security Settings).
• To listen to your voice messages, press 1. Please note
that if you do not have any messages, you will not hear this
prompt at the main menu.
• To send a message, press 2. To use this option, the person
you are sending the message to must also subscribe to Millry
Communications voicemail service.

Time Saver Options
By default, your account is set to play the main menu after you
log on. Autoplay allows you instead to go directly to your messages as soon as you enter your mailbox. It is described as a
hands-free feature, because you do not have to press any buttons to hear your messages.

always enter the telephone number, no matter which phone
you are using.

Usually when entering your mailbox, you need to enter your
PIN. However, it is possible to set up your mailbox so that you
can enter it without using a PIN when calling from your own
telephone. This feature is called Skip PIN.
This feature saves time, but significantly reduces the security
of your account. It means that any person with access to your
phone will be able to listen to your voicemail messages, and to
assume your identity when sending messages.

The time and date of each message is always recorded when
someone leaves a message for you. This information is called
the message header. You can choose whether the message
header is played before each message.
If you wish, you can also prevent the content of your messages
from being played automatically. This content is called the
message body.
From the Timesaver menu, to change whether or not the message
headers or bodies are played for your voicemails, press 3.
An announcement states whether the message header or body
are set to play.
