Every incoming message consists of two (2) parts: the header and the message itself. The header tells you the type of message, the time and day and date of delivery, the message length, and the sender's identity (for messages from on-campus).
Note: Audix is not meant to be used for long term storage of messages. In general, the system automatically deletes messages that are 13 days old. If you want to save important information, write it down.
Mailing lists can be used to send messages to the same group of people on a regular basis. A public list is one that anyone in Audix can use if they know the extension of the list owner and the name of the list. A private list can only be used by the creator of the list.
After recording your voice mail message, do the following steps if you wish to use a list to address your message for delivery.
You can respond to incoming messages in several ways. Listen carefully to the message header, which contains the name and extension number of the caller.
