Enable Dialing Restrictions on a UM Mailbox Policy

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

You can use the EMC and the Shell to enable dialing restrictions on a Unified Messaging (UM) mailbox policy in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. A dialing restriction is used to configure dialing rules that can be used to prohibit users associated with a UM mailbox policy from making certain types of telephone calls.

Dialing restrictions are used when you configure outdialing for UM-enabled users and can be used when you want to enable users to place calls to in-country/region or international telephone numbers. When you configure a setting on a UM mailbox policy, that setting will apply to all UM-enabled users associated with the UM mailbox policy.

Outdialing enables UM-enabled users to initiate calls from inside an organization that has Unified Messaging. For outdialing to work correctly, certain settings must be configured correctly. These settings include:

  • Dialing group rules   Dialing group rules determine the types of calls users within a dial group can make.

  • Dialing rule entries   Dialing rule entries define the number dialed by the UM-enabled user and the actual number that will be dialed by the Private Branch eXchange (PBX) or IP PBX.

  • Dialing restrictions   Dialing restrictions determine the restrictions applied to prevent users from incurring unnecessary telephone charges or from dialing long distance calls.
