Announce Only Mailbox

Is there a way to configure a mailbox for announcements only? I have been asked to create a mailbox for staff members to check job postings during summer vacation.<br><br>We want the staff to be able to listen to the postings, but not be able to leave a message. Union rules state that they must apply in writing, blah, blah, blah...<br><br>Thanks for any and all tips.<br><br><br>Steve Barr<br>Technology Coordinator<br>Madison Local School District

Re: Announce Only Mailbox

Can't you just use a call handler and use the greeting to broadcast this information? this is what call handlers are meant for (i.e. audio text type applications). I'm unsure if this is what you mean by an "announcement only" mailbox or not... if not, let me know what you're looking for.

Re: Announce Only Mailbox

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not very familiar with Unity, yet...

What I finally created was a mailbox that is set to hangup after the greeting. This allows the personnel department to login, and record the greeting. (I couldn't figure out how to do this in a call handler.) I set the caller input so that the 1 key sends the caller to the subscribers greeting (ie: repeat message).

Thanks again for your suggestion.
