Programming Remote Messaging
Your installer or system administrator must enable this feature on your voice
With Remote Messaging, you can program the Voice Processor (voice mail) to call
you when your mailbox receives new messages. Using a "cascade" (a series of up to
nine telephone numbers), voice mail will call each number until it successfully con-
nects to a device (e.g., pager, answering machine, etc.).
Because your mailbox can have a primary and an alternate cascade of numbers, you
can program a cascade to be used during specific days and times. For example, if you
want to be paged when you receive a message from 5-10 PM on weekdays, you can
set up a primary cascade. If you also want to receive pages for messages marked "pri-
ority" on the weekends, you could set your alternate cascade for all day on Saturdays
If for some reason voice mail is not able to use your remote notification, your
mailbox will receive a message stating that notification could not be completed.
