How to set up password for voicemail/how to set up new mailbox
I haven't been able to set up a new mailbox for a new employee; while on her extension, the voicemail prompt asks for a password, which we have not established. The vendor has provided a password to get me into the Administrative Mailbox, but then I'm not sure what to do to get to the individual...

Re: How to set up password for voicemail/how to set up...
By default, a Panasonic TVA voice mail system can have a password set. It could be 3 plus the extension number, but it doesn't matter. You can clear it by logging into mailbox 999 and going to options 6 1 3 which will be the mailbox password menu. Select the lady's extension and follow the instructions to confirm password deletion.
Now she can call voice mail from her extension and set a new password.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Each mailbox password is held in the system programming of the voicemail system. You need the system admin password for voicemail. Dial the access code for voicemail, if from a phone with voicemail then press * to get to the main greeting. At the main greeting dial * then the system admin mailbox number which is 99 for 2 digit ext numbers or 999 for 3 digit ext numbers or 9999 for 4 digit ext numbers then you will be prompted for the system admin passcode(default 1234). Press 2 for add/edit/delete (Never press 1 for new installation or you could delete all current voicemail programming and messages). Press 2 to edit mailbox, you will be prompted for the mailbox to edit, enter the mailbox number. Press # to skip to the passcode reset, enter the new passcode or press * to reset to default(999) then press # for each of the remaining parameters until you are returned to the mailbox menu which prompts for press 1 to add mailbox, 2 to edit mailbox, and 3 to delete mailbox, then hangup.
If it's a Panasonic brand voice mail, you administer the system from the System Owner's mailbox (999). With that, you can use option 4 or 5 and reset the mailbox password to any and all mailboxes (except 999 :-)
Depending on the type of voicemail you have, you''ll have to login to the admin mailbox. That's done by pressing your voicemail key or intercom 777. If you have a Partnermail VS the admin mailbox is 99 with the default password of 1234. If you mave a Partner Messaging System the admin mailbox is 0 with a default password of 1234 or 123456. Once your into the admin mailbox press 9 for admin programming. ,(depending on version) press either 2 or 4 administer extensions, enter the mailbox number of the box you want to reset, press 3 to re initalize the password, hang up when done
Actually, even as a technician, you will never know the origonal password.
But you can get in to reset the existing password back to 0 0 0 0.
There are a couple of steps; depending on your voicemail system, voicemail's are done differently, but try this first.
got to a M7310 set
-> dial FEATURE 9 8 3
-> password: 1 0 2 0 0 0 0
-> you should now see ADMIN and under that MBOX, AA, OTHR
-> press CHNG
-> dial the extension of the phones that you need changed
-> you should now see PASSWORD and under it RESET, press RESET (This resets the mailbox back to 4- zero's)
-> hit the * to back up and repeat fopr all the other extensions.
-> hit RLS after all is done and voila... you have now changed those passwords to those mailboxes.
Now when the new users dial F981 at their desks, and dial 0 0 0 0 the first prompt they get is pleasde change password.
Go back to your vendor and get the password for mailbox 999 and the instructions to log into it.
The mailbox exists or it wouldn't ask for a password (they're assigned by default), so you need to go to mailbox 999 and chose option 6 1 3 which is mailbox administration reset password. That will clear the password and you can log into the voice mail automatically from the extension by dialing the voice mail access code.
