New Voicemail System Implemented at the University of Wyoming

 

We are pleased to announce a new Voicemail System has been implemented at the University of Wyoming. This new system has replaced our old voicemail system and continue to provide similar integration with Office 365. You will continue to receive voicemail messages in your Outlook inbox once the instructions below have been completed. Any actions you take on messages via phone, Outlook, or your mobile email client will be synchronized.

                                                                              

The new voicemail system went into effect on Tuesday, November 6th, 2018.

If you are setting up your voicemail for the first time, please contact Teldesk by email at teldesk@uwyo.edu to receive your initial setup instructions.
