How to change the mailbox length.




IMPORTANT- Have a backup in the event you must return

1. Note: There was some down time involved & recommend to end-users to unselect the æremember passwordÆ on those screens so you can change logins when the system is rebuilt (if applicable).

2. a. On the Messaging Application Server (MAS), change the number of digits in a mailbox from x to x
Start/Programs/Avaya Modular Messaging/Voice Mail System Configuration Double-click on the Telephone User Interface Icon
On the General Tab, go the ôNumber of Digits in Mailboxö field and make the change.
Modular Messaging (MM) responds ôAll mail boxes will be invalidated, do you want to continue?ö

7. Test
-Dial Voice Mail (VM) system from a phone with Voice Mail & insure you hear prompt to enter password
-Log into mailbox and press 2 to send a message (local mailbox, ELA, PDL)
-Dial an extension (with a MM mailbox) that covers to MM and insure personal greeting plays
-Leave a message an insure MWI is turned on
-Log into mailbox, listen and delete message and insure MWI is off

8. Update the Message Networking server (if applicable)
