Hopefully one of you can help out.
We are running Unity 4.1 with Exchange Off box in its own domain, voicemail.local separate from the corporate Exchange.
We didn't go for full unified messaging as we are planning to upgrade to Exchange 2007 and didn't want to pay for Cisco's UM licence. Also with Cisco new licensing they are bundling it all up anyway. What I would like to do is send an email notification to my corporate email address ([email protected] for example) informing me I have a new voicemail message. Can this be done in Unity 4.2 with standard licences? If so has anyone set this up or point me in the right direction.
Cisco Unity does allow you to configure an SMTP address for notifications. This can be done per subscriber via the SA or CPCA.
SA --> Subscriber --> Message Notification
Text Pager 1
Text Pager 2
Text for Cisco Unity Inbox
CPCA --> Unity Assistant --> Notification Devices
Text for Unity Inbox
Text Pager 2
You will more than likely have to configure an SMTP connector on the Cisco Unity partner Exchange server to route messages to your corporate Exchange server.
Exchange System Manager --> First Organization --> Administrative Groups --> First Administrative Group --> Connectors
1. Right click on Connectors and choose "New" --> "SMTP Connector".
2. On the General tab, choose "Forward all mail through this connector to the following smart hosts", and enter the IP address of your corporate Exchange server with brackets around it (i.e. [10.10.10.10] ).
3. On the Address Space tab choose Add, and select SMTP. For the email domain, enter your corporate domain (i.e. cisco.com). This connector should then only route message notifications that are addressed to your corporate domain and not your voice messages too.
I suppose there could be networking issues (firewalls etc.) that could prevent this. But in theory this should work. This is how I have my lab system set up for testing purposes.
Hope that helps.
