I don't mean to veer off topic (too much) but I would seriously look into moving right to UC 7.O instead of UC 2.1. I believe the licensing has changed along with a number of superior product enhancements. We have been testing UC 7.0 in the lab for a fair while and it ROCKS! Have a look;
All user and interoperability functions are now offered under a single, low-cost user license that you can use for either voicemail or integrated messaging. Additionally, port and session capacity and failover redundancy licensing is available in two sizes: 24 ports or sessions and 144 ports or sessions.
New Features for Cisco Unity Connection Version 7.0 (these are just some of them :)
â¢ Cisco Unity Connection Version 7.0 offers increased scalability to support 144 ports and 10,000 users (7,500 with IMAP or Inbox in use).
â¢ High Availability support is achieved through an active-active redundancy configuration, which also supports up to 288 ports in the server pair.
â¢ ViewMail for Microsoft Outlook (VMO) plug-in allows you to compose, reply to, forward, play, rewind, pause, or fast forward voice messages directly from within the Outlook email client.
â¢ You can reply to and forward messages by using IMAP clients.
â¢ Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Directory Integration allows users to be quickly imported, synchronized, and authenticated within the directory.
â¢ Support for partitions, search spaces, and search scopes enables flexibility in dialing and message addressing.
â¢ A speech command tutorial is available.
â¢ You can dispatch a message to a group, with the message being assigned to the first member of the group to listen to the message. When the message is assigned, it is deleted from all other users' inboxes and becomes a normal message in the assignee's mailbox.
â¢ Custom keypad mapping tool allows administrators to create TUIs for specific user needs.
â¢ A message aging policy for secure messages automatically deletes all secure messages that are older than the specified number of days.
â¢ Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Versions 1, 2, and 3 are supported.
â¢ G.722 and Internet Low Bitrate Codec (iLBC) voice codecs are supported (advertised or "on the line").
Release Notes for Cisco Unity Connection Release 7.0(1)
In simple terms Users with voice mailboxes would be classified as the "Standard User" the addition of Features such as "Inbox User Access" would change them to an "Advanced User" and thus co$t more in terms of Licenses.
