Managing Voicemail Profiles

About Voicemail Profiles

Voicemail profiles determine how long voicemails are kept for a user or user group before deletion. Voicemail profiles use a Class of Service model to enable the quick assignment of voicemail notifications and retention limits to user groups or specific collections of users.

You can create profiles that set retention limits of 1 to 10,000 days, or use No Limits to set voicemails not to expire. You can effectively disable voicemail profiles by keeping the default Retention Limit value of the System Profile, No Limits, and assigning no other profile to your users.

The System Profile applies only when none of the users or user groups assigned to a mailbox has an assigned profile.

  • To create a new profile, select New. To edit an existing profile, select it from the list.

General tab

  • Name is an editable field.
  • Empty if you clicked New. Enter a name.
  • Populated if you selected an existing profile. You can change its name if you want.
  • Retention Limit specifies the limit for each profile, in number of days.
  • Use the radio buttons to select No Limits or the editable field.

Notifications tab

  • Set each of the first four values to Yes or No using its drop-down menu.
  • Email Notification Enabled Yes enables email (SMTP) notifications.
  • Email Notification Allow User Setup Yes allows users and user group administrators to turn email notifications on or off for themselves, and to specify the recipient email address. (No allows only administrators tocontrol user and user group settings.)
  • Web Service Notification Enabled Yes enables web (HTTP) notifications.
  • Web Service Notification Allow User Setup Yes allows users and user group administrators to turn web notifications on or off for themselves, and to specify the recipient phone number. No allows only administrators can control user and user group settings.
