I need configure Group Voice Mail for a user team in the Cisco unity 5. I have created a Public Distribution List and have asociated the subscriber into of this Public Distribution List. that is all ?? Or I need configure the extension number of the Public Distribution List to the second line in the phones of the users associated to Public Distribution List?

Hi Ricardo,

Hope all is well!

A PDL is used for sending a message to groups of users in bulk.

Public Distribution Lists Overview

Public distribution lists are used to send voice messages to multiple subscribers. The subscribers that are assigned to a public distribution list typically are subscribers who need the same information on a regular basis, such as employees in a department or members of a team. The class of service that is associated with each subscriber account dictates whether subscribers can send messages to public distribution lists in Cisco Unity.

Cisco Unity automatically creates a public distribution list called All Subscribers. You may want to associate the All Subscribers list with every subscriber template.

What you seem to be looking for is more of a "Group Mailbox". This can be done by configuring a new mailbox with the required directory number and then adding this DN to the Second line button of the group member phones. This way they will receive a visual indication MWI when new messages arrive :)

Hope this helps!
