    Voicemail in your e-mail

    If your landline is weighing you down, University Information Technology Services can help you access your voicemail anywhere.

    UITS offers a service known as Enhanced Voicemail that enables anyone with a UA telephone number to check their voicemail on their e-mail.

    “”If you’re at home, at work, on vacation, or wherever, you can check up on your voicemail online,”” said Lisa Stage, a marketing specialist for UITS.

    The voicemail service, known as EVM, can perform two different functions, Stage said. Users can listen to complete voicemails that come as an audio attachment to the email, or simply receive an email notification when they have a new voicemail.

    Because the program is operated through UITS Telecommunication Services, it is not compatible with peoples’ cell phones. However, the e-mails can be sent to any e-mail address, not just UA Webmail accounts.

    The majority of users are faculty and staff, Stage said, because most undergraduates don’t have a UA telephone. However, many of the fraternity and sorority houses around campus contract with UITS for landline phone service, and the service would be thus available to them.

    Students who choose to install a phone in their dorm room would also have access to the service.

    Stage said she was unsure how many EVM users there are, but that it was a surprisingly small number given how many years the service has been offered.

    “”It’s been around for a few years, but no one seems to know about it,”” she said.
