In Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, the Unified Messaging server role is one of several server roles that you can install and then configure on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003. The concept of Unified Messaging is new to the Exchange product line, and its introduction brings with it new telephony concepts that may not be familiar to an Exchange administrator.

Exchange Server 2007 Unified Messaging combines voice messaging, fax, and e-mail into one Inbox, which can be accessed from the telephone and the computer. Unified Messaging integrates Exchange Server 2007 with the telephony network in your organization and brings the features found in Unified Messaging to the core of the Exchange Server product line.
