Retrieve Voice Mail PIN Information

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2013-04-03

You can retrieve PIN information for a user who is enabled for Unified Messaging (UM). After a user has been enabled for UM-enabled and a PIN is generated or created, the PIN is encrypted and stored in the user's mailbox.

When you retrieve PIN information for a UM-enabled user, the information returned to you is calculated by using the encrypted PIN data stored in the user's mailbox. This lets you view information from the user's mailbox and also indicates whether the user has been locked out of the mailbox.

For additional tasks related to PIN security, see PIN Security Procedures.

  1. In the EAC, navigate to Recipients. In the list view, select the user mailbox that you want to view.
  2. In the details pane, under Phone and Voice Features, click View details.
  3. On the UM Mailbox page > UM mailbox settings, view the PIN status for the user. On this page, you can also reset the voice mail PIN for the user.
