I am considering the implimentation of a small VoIP infasturcture utilizing a mamimum of 10 handsets (to start off), a small router such as a 1700 or 2600 series equipied with PSTN interfaces, and voice mail capability.
I am new to Cisco VoIP but have experience with other Cisco products and would like to know the least expenisve way to impliment voice mail.
I learned a lot from from the CCO document 'Configuring and Troubleshooting Cisco IOS Telephony Service (ITS)' but still have some questions that need to be answered.
It depends on your needs. For a small deployment using ITS, it is possible to integrate into a Cisco Unity voicemail system. This gets you unified messaging with Microsoft Exchange, if you run that internally. It does, however, require a seperate MCS server and appropriate Unity licensing, which may be expensive for your tastes.
If your messaging needs are VERY simple, such that one general mailbox for all extensions would do, it is possible to attach a consumer-type answering machine to an FXS port and call-forward-no-answer your ITS phones to it. Almost all answering machines support remote message retrieval, so you can program the Messages button on the phones to call it and leave instructions with the users as to how to receive messages. This "solution" cannot light users' message-waiting lights on their phones.
If your purchase is some months away, you might want to stay tuned. It is rumored that Cisco will be announcing a hardware-based, fairly cost-effective voicemail solution for small office ITS deployments. I do not know the timeline.

The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
