Welcome to JustAnswer.com

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am one of the experts who will be assisting you today!

WIthout knowing your system exactly, or the model of it. Its going to make it very difficult to help.

So im going to take a guess, and hope this is close. I think you could have a Starplus system from Vodavi. If so, this page may help.

http://www.datavoice.net/PDF/Vodavi%20UG/STS_UG.pdf

Specifically page 91..

That covers how to access the voicemail and greeting for a particular mailbox.

What may be happening, is all your calls are being routed to one specific mailbox.. So its that mailboxes voicemail that is picking up when people call.

Sift through that guide, and if it looks like or resembles your system. Then let me know.

If this doesnt appear to be your system at all, then also let me know.

Thanks,

D.Sandlin
