Office 365 Voicemail

Microsoft, our Skype for Business and Office 365 voicemail provider, has upgraded our Cloud Voicemail to the latest release. Due to this upgrade, some functionality has changed. These changes only affect users that have had their email migrated to the cloud (O365).

  • There is no longer a dial in access number for voicemail.
  • The voicemail menu now only has two options:
    • Listen to Voicemail
    • Record Personal Greeting (Personal & Out of Office)
      • Note: The system will automatically generate a personal greeting that includes the name on the account. We suggest recording a personal greeting if the system is not pronouncing the name correctly.
    • See more detailed information below
  • Please disregard the phone number and pin in the welcome email
    • You will no longer need a pin number to access voicemail
  • The message light on your phone may either be stuck on or off. Please use email, Skype for Business or Teams to manage voicemail
  • You will receive a "missed call" email if a caller gets to your voicemail but does not leave a message


  • You can listen to voicemails via the messages in your email, desk phone, Skype for Business or Teams application
  • You can record your voicemail greeting via a desk phone, Skype for Business client or Teams

IMPORTANT: If you have a department or generic account that you need access to, please send an email that includes the extension and associated email account (if you know it) and we will work with you to provide the best solution available.
