Answering Machine Emulation


A user’s keyset can work like a home answering machine. This lets IntraMail screen their calls, just like their answering machine at home. If activated, the extension’s incoming calls route to the user’s Subscriber Mailbox. Once the mailbox answers, the user hears two alert tones followed by the caller’s incoming message. The keyset user can then:
  • Let the call go through to their mailbox, or
  • Intercept the call.
