Cannot access Cisco Unity Connection voicemail mailbox from external phone

CUCM 7.1 and Unity Connection 7.0

Using an on-net IP phone I can connect to my VM server via the messages button and pilot number 7499. When I hit the message button or dial the vm pilot number I get the normal response, "enter your PIN....". But when I call the VM pilot number from an outside line I get "From a touchtone telephone you can dial en extension at any time.....". Essentially I'm getting the main system greeting instead of the prompts to enter my mailbox and PIN. How can I correct this so when I dial in to the VM system I can check messages?

Output from port monitoring:

Hi Michael,

When you hit the Opening Greeting - Press * (Star)

You will be prompted to enter your Extension and PIN to access your mailbox.

Cheers!

Nevermind. The system is performing as configured. When calling my VM pilot I am routed to the opening greeting when then has an option for caller input of "*" to access subscriber sign-in.

Re: Cannot access Cisco Unity Connection voicemail mailbox from

Hi Michael -

In addition to what Rob posted for you, there is an additional option you can code for your Unity Connection subscribers when they call the voicemail pilot from their "external" or home phone numbers.  You can define for each user one or more "alternate extensions".  If you define their home phone number as one of the alternate extensions, when they dial the UC pilot, they will be recognized as a subscriber and be prompted for PIN without having to enter the userid.
