This topic explains how to use the Voice Mail tab configuration options in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 to choose a voice mail greeting. After you have connected to your Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 mailbox using Outlook 2007 and the administrator has enabled your user account for Unified Messaging, you can configure multiple voice mail options. These options include resetting an Outlook Voice Access PIN and voice mail greetings and missed call notifications.
A voice mail greeting is a greeting that callers hear before they leave a voice mail message. When the Voice mail greeting option is selected, a voice mail greeting is played to callers. If the Out of Office voice mail greeting is selected when you are out of the office, callers will hear an Out of Office greeting. By default, a standard, non-personalized voice mail greeting is played to callers. However, users can record their personal voice mail greetings by using the voice mail options that are available in Outlook 2007.
|The voice mail options found in Outlook 2007 are also available in Exchange 2007 Outlook Web Access.|
Before You Begin
To perform the following procedures on a client computer that has Outlook 2007 installed, the user must be logged on to their Exchange 2007 mailbox with their domain account.

- The Unified Messaging server role is installed on a server that
is running Microsoft Exchange 2007.

Note: For many of the voice mail options that are included in Outlook 2007 and Exchange 2007 Outlook Web Access to function correctly, the Client Access server role must be installed on a computer that is running Exchange 2007 and Autodiscover must be configured correctly.

In the Voice Mail section, in the Choose the greeting played to callers option, select the Voice mail greeting option to play your voice mail greeting or select the Out of Office voice mail greeting option to play your Out of Office greeting.
