Seems to be a key mapping problem

Inter-Tel Axxess Corded Phone
I have a user that usually checks her voice mail by pressing the spkr key then the msg key, this takes her straight into the voice mail where it prompts for the password. but now when she presses these two keys, the phone wants to dial the ext # of someone else in the office. I tried to remap this key, but get the message that this key is not reprogramable. Any ideas? Thanks Sally P

Re: seems to be a key mapping problem

I have a pretty good guess.... someone may have intercomed her phone from another station and then pressed the MSG key. This would leave an intercom message and should light up the message waiting light. Then when you press the MSG button you are returning the intercom call. If nobody ever answers the intercom call the return message will not be completed and it will continue to try and return the call whenever you press the button. SO... if this is the case you just need to have someone answer the other phone that is being called and it should start working the way you are used to again.

Have the phone check for a message, and see who it is calling and as it is ringing pick up the phone being called. As Priority1 said it will be fixed.

An Axxess Executive Digital Terminal: One of our

I am going to include a link to the administrator guide for you to download (its in pdf format). However here is what I found in the admin guide:

To change a password:
1. Access the voice mail administrator's mailbox and menu (see page 53).
2. Say "Mailbox Maintenance" or press to access the Mailbox/Group List Maintenance
3. Say or enter the mailbox or extension ID to be accessed. You hear the Personal Options
4. Say "Password" or press .
5. If you want a password, enter a new password using digits 0-9 (up to 12 digits) and
press when you are done.Voice mail plays back the password.
If you do not want to use a password, say "Skip" or press . Voice mail announces
that you have chosen not to have a password.
6. Say "Accept" or press to accept the password as entered, or say "Re-enter" or press
to erase and re-enter the password.
7. Hang up or press to return to the previous menu.

If this is not the right section then maybe one of these admin guides will help:

Hope it all goes well for you

Ik am getting a "Major alarm" notificatino on my consoles. I can call in but all consoles are dead. system goes to voice mail after a time, but nothing rings

From the attendant consloe, press the "SPCL" key followed by 019 that should clear the alarms. its my guess that you had a power outage and that the system started up in night mode (default program)
To change to day press the "SPCL" key and 010.

Inter-tel axxess cabling

Possible loose connection in the telcom room or room jack. Try re-punching all the connections that relate to that phone and test again. No special cables needed for exec. phone, just a single pair as any other.

I have an Axxess by Inter-Tel phone system and I can not access the system administrator mail box # to get into the system.

This is set up in the phone system programming as to what the mailbox is and the password. If you are not able to get in then you will need to call a technician.

Change initial message on Axxess PBX

By initial message, I assume you are talking about the auto attendant message heard when dialing your main line

To change the message:
1.  Dial the voice mail extension number, then press "*" when you hear the greeting.
2.  Enter the system administrator mailbox number and password.
3.  The system will tell you how full the hard drive "9" to skip and enter the system menu.
4.  Press "3" for the custom recordings.
5.  Then press "1" to record or edit the messages.

You will need to know the recording number of the message you want to change.

Inter-tel Access

You definitely need to have a local phone installation company come in and help you with this. Axxess system setup and programming is extremely complicated for someone that has not worked with it and it requires specific software to make program changes. If you know the company that installed (or services) the system you should call them.

Interel voice mail rings

In System Timers change the System Forward Initiate timer. Be cautious that this is a system wide timer and will affect all users. If you want it done just on one phone it gets a little bit more complicated but it is still possible.
