Normally each extension will have it's own associated mailbox but this needn't be the case. Independent mailboxes can be added to the voicemail and in some cases they are shared by more than one user.
You will need to check the voicemail and the Meridian 1 to collate this information. Start by checking the voicemail.
Log into the voicemail and select from the menu:
- User Administration
- Local Voice User
- Press the Find soft key then the List soft key, without having entered any fields.
Mail will produce a list of all local voice users (mailbox numbers).
Each Meridian extension requires the class of service (CLS) to be set so that message waiting is active and the message waiting lamp or key is activated when new mail arrives. Using LD 81, Features and Station Print, set up the feature list as shown below:
|FEAT||MWA(ENTER)||Message waiting allowed (500 and digital sets)|
|FEAT||MWD||Message waiting denied (500 and digital sets)|
|FEAT||MWK||Message waiting key (Digital sets)|
|FEAT||LPA||Lamp allowed (500 sets)|
|FEAT||LPD||Lamp denied (500 sets)|
Press enter key until the printout starts
The CLS settings are used in combination to provide the appropriate feature.
For an analogue 500 set you may find you have MWA LPD. New mail messages will be indicated by special dial tone. MWA LPA will light the message waiting lamp if the phone has one fitted.
Digital sets will be MWA and may or may not have a Message waiting key. TNs with MWD would generally indicate that the extension does not have the voicemail facility.
Only trained system administrators can make these changes:
