Hello everyone,

If any line is active anywhere in our network, even if the other 5 lines are free, and someone tries to go and retrieve a voicemail, it is denied, being forwarded to our Auto Attendant instead of their voicemail inbox and login. Now, they can press pound, then their voicemail box number and then login, but what is the work around so that they do not have to do this?

Thanks for your help!

I am not sure if there is anything I can do to figure this out based on this information, but maybe a couple of follow-up questions may turn up something. It is usually easier to figure this out onsite.

Do you know the model of your phone system? If you are not sure, is it very old or very new?
Would you know what type of voicemail system is connected to this system?
Usually the Stratagy line of voicemail systems (most common V.M. on older systems) use the star key to log in, not the pound key. The new IPEdge and Strata Messaging Voicemail systems use the # key. Some old or 3rd party may also use the # key.
Are the users pressing a flashing MSG button or are they dialing the voicemail extension directly?
Older Toshiba systems will connect you to your voicemail box when you press the flashing MSG light, but will always connect to the main greeting when you dial the extension. Newer CIX and IPEdge systems should always connect you to your voicemail box.

I can't see how a call on the lines would have anything to do with the voicemail integration. I think there is something else going. Nothing pops into my head based on the information you have provided. If you have a Toshiba dealer that you use, you may need to have them look at this for you.

Check to see that all ports connected to the voice mail are designated as voice mail ports in KSU station assignments. It could be that only the first port is set properly and subsequent calls are not sending integration strings to the voice mail.
