Allow or Prevent Message Waiting Indicator on a UM IP Gateway

 

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

You can allow voice mail notifications to be sent to users for calls received by a Unified Messaging (UM) IP gateway. If you enable this setting, the UM IP gateway will be able to receive and send SIP NOTIFY messages for users. Message Waiting Indicator is enabled by default and allows message waiting notifications to be sent to users.

Message waiting indicator is a feature found in most legacy voice mail systems. In its most common form, it lights a lamp on the called party's phone to indicate the presence of a new voice message. Message waiting indicator can refer to any mechanism that indicates the existence of a new voice message or an unheard voice message.

The indication that a new voice message has arrived can be found in the Inbox in clients such as Outlook and Outlook Web App. It can take the form of a text (SMS) message sent to a registered mobile phone, an outgoing call made from an Exchange Unified Messaging server to number that's been configured for playing new messages, or it can be a lighted lamp on a user's desktop phone.
