The manual my office manager gave me says to retrieve messages when I'm out of the office all I have to do is call my office, enter my phone station code and then dial 2.
I keep getting put into leave a message mode. How do I GET my messages?

The above link is the manual. I was looking at pgs 15, 16, and 18. On pg 18 it says there is a default code that will retrieve messages you enter from phone, that's probably it I think. Download is 12.8mb.
The VTech 6041 isn't an answering machine. If you have a separate answering machine connected to your phone line, please consult its documentation. If you're subscribed to a voicemail system provided by your telephone company, please contact them for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.
Alternatively, if you do have an answering machine connected to your phone, reply to this post and specify the make and model of your answering machine.
The display on a Nortel set will say "message for you" if there's a message in your mailbox. To access your voicemail you can press your open voicemail key if its programmed or press feature 981.If you wish to retrieve your messages remotely, call your office, when the autoattendant answers the call press ** followed by your extension number, your password then # (ex. **2231234#).
Your phone does not have an internal answering machine/voicemail function. It only allows you to retrieve voicemail messages if you subscribe to voicemail service through your telephone service provider. Access and other features vary by telephone company and location, so you need to contact your phone company for specifics. The voicemail light on your phone lets you know if you have new messages on your phone company system. To disable this light if you do not subscribe to this service: - Press PROG - Use the up/down arrow keys to select CLR VOICEMAIL - Press SELECT. The screen displays CLEAR? and YES flashes. - Press SELECT to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone.

To Access Your Mailbox from Outside of the Office:
1. Call the main office number or your DID (if applicable.
2. If the call is answered by a receptionist, have them transfer you to your voicemail box
3. If the call is answered by the company greeting, or your personal greeting, Enter: * *
4. At the prompt, enter your mailbox #(extension #. and password all together
When you press the voicemail button on your phone it is retrieving messages stored internally in your phone. Verizons Voicemail is a seperate entity where the message reside on the server. If you do not want to use the Verizon Voicemail, simply call the business office and ask them to remove voicemail completely from the account. That way your phones internal answerming machine whille then catch all the voicemails and you can go back to using your voicemail button to listen to them. Hope that helps you and everyone else out.
The answer for both of you is the System Administrator's mailbox. It lets you addl, delete and edit mailboxes and reset passwords.
When your system was installed, you should have been given instructions and passwords for both the Message Manager and System Manager's mailboxes. The access to those boxes is similar and I will not give out that sequence in a public forum, but you should be able to find it in the manual or via email to me...I'll show up on the web somewhere.
