Enable an Informational Announcement on a UM Auto Attendant

 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

You can enable an informational announcement for a Unified Messaging (UM) auto attendant in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. When an informational announcement is enabled, it will play immediately after the business or non-business hours greeting. By default, an informational announcement isn't configured. To enable an informational announcement, create a .wav file to be used as the informational announcement, and then configure the auto attendant to use this .wav file.
