Using Outlook with Voice Mail
ShoreTel Communicator can integrate your voice mail with Outlook. From within Outlook you can:
Select your playback device
Listen to a voice mail
Reply to a voice mail
Create a new voice mail
Forward a voice mail
Edit the subject of a voice mail
Delete a voice mail
Move a voice mail into another folder
Your voice mails are listed in the Outlook Inbox. Voice mails are indicated by a cassette icon, and
include the phone number or extension of the sender. Unheard messages are displayed in bold; a red
exclamation point is associated with urgent messages.
If you are upgrading from a previous version of ShoreTel Communicator, new voice mail items are
displayed in the Outlook Inbox for previously existing voice mails, resulting in duplicate items. You can
delete the older duplicate voice mails, since these items no longer contain the voice message.
Both Outlook and Communicator must be installed to enable calendar integration.
