Outlook Voice Access lets UM-enabled users access their Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 mailbox by using analog, digital, or cellular telephones. By using the menu system found in Outlook Voice Access, UM-enabled users can read e-mail, listen to voice messages, interact with their Outlook calendar, access their personal contacts, and manage personal options such as configuring their Outlook Voice Access PIN or recording their voice mail recordings. This topic contains a list of the commands and how they are used by Outlook Voice Access users when they call in to a subscriber access number to access their Exchange 2007 mailbox.

There are two Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging user interfaces available to subscribers: the Telephone User Interface (TUI) and the Voice User Interface (VUI). In Exchange 2007, these two interfaces together are called Outlook Voice Access. Outlook Voice Access can be used when a subscriber accesses the Unified Messaging system from an external or internal telephone to access their personal e-mail, voice messages, contacts, and calendaring information in their Exchange 2007 mailbox.

For more information about the user interfaces that are used by Outlook Voice Access users, see the following topics:
