  • Call Return: Call the message sender and return to the mailbox after the call completes.
  • Graphical User Interface (GUI): Access and manage messages visually using the voice mail portal.
  • Greeting Only Mailbox: Callers can access a “listen only” mailbox to hear a greeting that the mailbox owner has recorded. The caller cannot leave a message.

  • Mailbox Full and Almost Full Warnings: The system notifies you in when your mailbox space approaches or exceeds a specified threshold.
  • Mailbox Preferences: You can change your personal mailbox options. Personal options control the information about you as a subscriber and some of the choices you make for interacting with voice mail.
  • Message Age and Deletion: UC Davis Voice Mail sets a limit on how long messages can be retained in your mailbox. This enables service providers to free up message storage space. The voice mail portal has a view that indicates how long a message will be kept before it is deleted.
  • Message Envelope Information: Retrieve the sender name, time, and date of messages.
  • Message Playback Options: While listening to a message, you can press keys on your phone to advance or rewind the message a specified number of seconds, pause and resume playback, and increase or decrease the volume of the message playback. During or after message playback, you can re-play, save, delete, forward, and reply to the message. After you listen to the message, you can also play its envelope information.
  • Notifications: UC Davis Voice Mail can notify you that you have received a new message. You can receive notifications by a message waiting indicator (MWI) light on your phone, an e-mail message or by receiving a phone call to any phone number you specify. You can enable or suspend notifications by using your telephone or voice mail portal.
  • Out-dial Message: Record a message and address it to a distribution list. The system dials each member of the list, both on and off the UC Davis Voice Mail platform.
  • Private Messages: You can set the sensitivity level of a message to private. Private messages cannot be forwarded to other subscribers.
  • Scheduled Message Delivery: You can specify a date and time to deliver an outgoing message.
