Set the number of sign-in failures before a voice mail PIN is reset

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-22

You can configure the number of sign-in failures allowed before the PIN is reset for an Outlook Voice Access user to a value from 1 through 998. The default is 5. The number of sign-in failures allowed before a PIN is reset is configured on a Unified Messaging (UM) mailbox policy and applies to all Outlook Voice Access users associated with the UM mailbox policy.

NoteNote:
You can increase security by configuring the Number of sign-in failures before PIN reset setting to a number less than 5. You decrease security if you configure it to a number more than 5.

For additional tasks related to Outlook Voice Access PIN security, see PIN security procedures.

  • Estimated time to complete: 3 minutes.

  • You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure or procedures. To see what permissions you need, see the "UM mailbox policies" entry in the Unified Messaging permissions topic.
