Asterisk IP PBX is one of the largest purveyors of unified communications, a set of technologies designed to let people manage their communications as they like and be contacted in the best possible way given where they are and what devices they have on hand. But the concept, which is built around making everything into packets on a single IP (Internet Protocol) network, also opens up new possibilities for merged forms of communication.
A growing trend in telephony is integrating voicemail messages with the end user’s email inbox. This is beneficial for a number of reasons. An increasing number of users are working remotely without easy access to their system voicemail box. In these situations, many users find it easier to log-in to their email inbox and listen to their voicemail's online. IP PBX send the voicemail itself as an attached audio file to your email inbox.
IP PBX Voicemail To Email has three options in terms of how it works:
Forward Voicemail to email: The user receives an email with the voicemail attachment. The original voicemail remains on the server
Move Voicemail to email: An email is sent with the voicemail as attachment, and the original voicemail is deleted from the server
Email alert: An alert alert is sent to the IP Pbx user, without any attachment. Attachment stays on the server.
