Cisco Unity Connection not relaying voicemails outside the organization
Hi all, we are running Cisco Unity Connection version: 8.6.2ES25.21900-25. It has been set up to accept voicemails for Exchange 2010 users (in other words email messages with WAV attachments) and deliver these to their inboxes; this works with no problem.
I have two users who would like to receive these emails at their outside account, however the messages are never sent. I have tried the following:
Unchecked the option to "Generate SMTP Proxy Address From Corporate Email Address."
On the "Message Actions" page for their account I have configured voicemail and email to "Relay the message" and entered their external SMTP addresses.
Confirmed the smart host setup is OK (points to our Exchange 2010 CAS which has firewall rules in place to permit it to send mail outside the organization.
Confirmed the Exchange 2010 CAS will accept SMTP messages from the subnet the Unity Connection server resides in.
If I switch the user SMTP settings BACK to their original internal SMTP addresses for my company the messages are then immediately delivered properly to these addresses. This signifies to me that Unity is periodically trying to send these items but they just aren't going out. No sign of the messages in any user report I ran in Unity nor message tracking in Exchange.
I also tried setting up an Outlook rule to forward these voicemail messages to the recipients external addresses but this did not work and after doing some research I see that the way in which Unity delivers the messages to these recipients internally (via EWS) is the reason why. I wonder if this is the same reason these are not going out to their external SMTP addresses.
Following up on this question. We are on Unity 9.1.2 and have the same issue. Voicemails are relayed without issue to internal Exchange users, but we are unable to relay messages to any e-mail addresses outside of Exchange.
Trying to troubleshoot, our Sys Admin set up our Unity server as an Relay Connector in Exchange, but that did not do the trick.
That certainly sounds like relaying is being denied by your Exchange server. You can look at message tracking, or download the SMTP logs from CUC via RTMT. I strongly suspect that is what it will tell you.
same need... on Cisco Unity Connection Administration, Version 188.8.131.5200-32.
Have any of you guys succeeded at this or care to share insights? We just acquired a second company/domain. We have Unity send voicemails to email, and now we have users on two different email domains.
It looks like Unity holds only one SMTP domain, and I'm not sure what Smart Host is yet. It looks like it's just for notifications ... ?
In Unity>>User>>JaneDoe>>Edit>>Basics, down at the bottom I set 'Corporate Email Address' to firstname.lastname@example.org
Then I go over to Edit>>Message Actions and see this at the top of the screen:
Status [message] Single-inbox address is email@example.com. [message] UM service Email action is: Relay the Message. [message] UM service Fax action is: Accept the Message. [message] Voicemails will be synchronized to firstname.lastname@example.org and retained on Connection. [message] Receipts will be synchronized to email@example.com and retained on Connection. [message] Faxes will be retained on Connection. [message] Emails will be relayed to single-inbox address firstname.lastname@example.org.
>"Voicemails will be synchronized to email@example.com"
Yes, this is what I want !
But it doesn't work. I leave a message and it never emails it to JaneDoe.
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
answer. Be sure to read the whole thing or e...
