Accessing Voicemail via the Internet
To accommodate those people who want to access their voicemail remotely, ICIT has activated a feature which allows people to get voicemail via their internet-connected computer. This service is available at http://voicemail.hunter.cuny.edu.
To log into this secure site, you will need your 5 digit extension (starting with 1) and your voicemail password.
There are many useful features on this site. Here are just two highlights:
- Voicemail notification via email: If you enable this feature, the voicemail system will send an email informing you that a voicemail message has arrived to email addresses you specify. It will also add caller ID information for that voicemail, if it is available. This feature can be found under "Personal Settings" on the website. You must enable it to work and you must specify email addresses where the notification is to be sent.
- Hear your voicemail on your computer: Your voicemails are automatically saved in electronic format on the website. You can hear them on a computer that can play sound files. If you click on the voicemail it will be downloaded to your computer. Various audio programs such as iTunes can be used play these messages. To access this feature open the "Mail Client" on the voicemail website. Voicemails will be found in the inbox. When you open the inbox there will be various options besides just hearing the voicemail. You may save it, delete, forward it, etc. If you access a message on the computer and do not delete it, it will be moved to the saved file on your phone. The red voicemail light on your phone will then go out until a new voicemail arrives.
