Play Voice Messages from Cobras Backup


Is there a way to play the saved voice messages wav files on PC desktop from a Cobras Backup taken from Unity Connection 7?

I dont believe so.  The file may have the wav files somewhere deep in the file, but you will not know which is whos.   your best bet is to use IMAP to export the voicemail file you are looking for

Yes, for non secure messages you can use the COBRAS Backup Editor which you can find (along with its help file) on the COBRAS home page:
