  11. (Optional)  By default a separate Inbox for voicemail is created.  You can change the settings to have new voicemail messages sent to your regular email inbox.  Go to the Account Settings and select the POP/SMTP account.  Then, click the Change folder button located below the account list.  Select the Inbox on your regular email account.  Click OK and you are done.

Tips:

  • Leaving a copy of the message on the voicemail server is optional.  You can go back into your newly created email account to change that setting.  It can be handy to have a backup copy.  Voicemail is automatically deleted from the voicemail server after 45 days.
  • To create a voicemail inbox folder in Outlook, go to the menu, click on File, New, Folder.  Name it something like "Voicemail Inbox."  Pay attention to where you place the folder.
  • To create inbox rules from your voicemail, in the Outlook menu select Tools, Rules and alerts, New rule.  A typical voicemail "To" field would be similar to this >>>4458@voicemailclient.uwsp.edu<<< use the whole address to identify voicemail to be moved to your voicemail inbox folder.
  • When sending an email to a voicemail you must use the POP3 account you just created.  To select that account, select the second account with your email address on it.
  • When forwarding a voicemail to an email address, you must use your regular email account.  It will usually be account #1.
