hunt pilot voice mail


To get the call to voicemail you can just configure the hunt timeout on the Hunt Pilot and set it to forward to the Unity pilot number.

To light up the phones you can add 'alternate extensions' to the Unity mailbox to have it light multiple phones, however there is a limit and I think it's 10.. So two other options for larger groups of phones are:

1) Shared line - you could put 5000 as a shared second line on all the phones; it will ring on them all, and you can forward it to voicemail using ring-no-answer timeout.

2) You could add another shared line (e.g. 5001) to all the phones, and set 5001 as an alternate extension on the voicemail box for 5000. Set the hunt pilot to time out after x seconds and route to voicemail.
