Configure the Unified Messaging Play on Phone number option

You can use the Play on Phone number option to record personalized voice mail greetings and to play your voice mail messages over a telephone.

The specified telephone number is used when you receive a voice message in your Inbox and you click Play on Phone. The voice mail messages are retrieved and played on your phone. You also use the Play on Phone number option to create and edit personalized voice mail greetings.

 Note    This feature requires a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 or Exchange Server 2007 account. Unified Messaging must be enabled by your Exchange administrator.

Type the number exactly as you would dial the number from your office phone, including any prefixes. For example, you might type 12345 for an extension, or 9 (425) 555-0183 for an outside line on a business phone system. Parentheses, hyphens, and spaces are not required, but might be easier to read.

 Note    Exchange administrators can restrict the Play on Phone number. For example, you might not be able to specify a phone number that is outside of your organization.
