Hello

Thanks for using JustAnswer.

I do not understand when you say "voice mail". To my understanding of this machine, it does not supports the actual voice mail. Are you referring "voice mail" as "voice"? ie: the normal operation of a telephone?

Also, if you need to receive both fax and voice, you will need to turn off Auto Answer.

The manual, found here, will describe in details how to configure the fax machine to your specific needs.

All the best.
