Voicemail notifications are controlled by whichever voicemail box you have set here.


If the department voicemail box is the same as the department, then any users with the voicemail permission enabled under 'advanced settings' seen below will receive voicemail notifications by phone through *97 and by email. You can see on the right the checkboxes for voicemail notifications.



If the department voicemail box is different than the current department selected, then only users with the voicemail permission enabled under 'advanced settings' of that voicemail box or department voicemail box will receive voicemail notifications by phone through *97 and by email. None of the users in the department itself will get those notifications. Labeling on voicemail emails will match whatever the department voicemail box name is.
