Getting Your Voicemail Via Email

There are many features of Avaya Aura Messaging, the system we use for voicemail and unified communication on the NDSU campus, that go well beyond just leaving and retrieving messages.

One feature I have found especially useful when I am out of the office is the ability to get an email and/or text message when someone leaves you a voicemail message. Here's how to set it up.

You can control many of Aura's features by logging in to your account. Just go to and log in with your 5-digit mailbox number (e.g. 17381 for my phone number 231-7381) and your messaging password.

Aura Messaging Notify Me ScreenIf you want to get notifications of your voicemail messages with a call or text message to your mobile phone, you will need to enter your mobile phone number under "Mobile Phone or Pager" on the "General" screen (that's the 1st screen you will see when you log in). Click the "Save" button to save your changes.

Next click the "Notify Me" button in the left-side menu and choose how you would like to be notified. If you choose to receive a text message alerting you to new voicemail messages, you will need to select your wireless carrier.

Email Message for VoicemailIf you choose to be notified through an email message, just select that option and enter your email address. Be sure to check the box for "Include recording" if you want to receive an audio file of your voicemail messages attached to the email alert. Don't forget to click the "Save" button!

That's it! Now you will now when someone leaves you a voicemail message, even if you are out of the office.

This is a feature of the Aura Messaging service which, as far as I know, if only available to those with offices on the NDSU campus.
