I have setup Unity as a Unified Messaging Server. I have given some users unified messaging and others just voicemail. All users have Exchange accounts. Is there any way for a voicemail only user to receive voicemail indication on their phone only? Right now, voicemail users receive a email from the Unity server stating they have voicemail along with their MWI lighting up. This is confusing some users who don't have viewmail on their pc's. I don't want voicemail only user's to have access via email to check their voicemails. Any insight is greatly appreciated.

With Unified messaging, Unity will store the voicemail message in the same message store as the subscriber's email messages. If you want to defeat the purpose of Unified messaging, you can create a separate Exchange alias for voice mail vs. email. This way there are two message stores instead of a single, unified message store.

I ran into this with another client, who had over 200 voicemail only boxes. We created mailboxes on the Unity Server and gave them a extention. Then we hid the mailbox from the address book so users did not email them. They have been happy with that.
