You will need to provide your extension to voicemail when it answers. If you do not know your extension it will be on the email from Microsoft Outlook as well. After entering your extension it will prompt you to enter your PIN. Use the PIN that is in the email and hit # as directed.

The only time that you will use the PIN number is when you are calling into voicemail. You do not need to use the PIN at any other time. Select a PIN that you will not forget.
