    Have a Mitel 5220 with a flashing message alert but there is no message. The phone is not part of the ACD. Im sure there is a key combination that will clear it but cannot remember what it is.

    Can anyone help

Is the phone in a ACD? I'm guessing it also has a broken dial tone? We had this problem and found that the phone was part of an ACD but wasn't logged in, causing a call forward to kick in. We had to dial *81 on the phone to clear the phone settings (it will be different for you no doubt so check the Feature Access Code Assignment.

Failing this, I would suggest you take the persons telephone line out of the system entirely, clear voicemail, clear the extension number and clear its IP registration etc and then start afresh; this has worked for us in the past too.

Best of luck!

    This is activated also by a call back message, mormally cleared by pressing the message key on phone which will then give you the option to call the originating phone or cancel. Auto cancels usually after 24 hours as set in the COS field.Hope this solves issue

This can usually be fixed by calling the phone number that the voice mail indicator light is flashing on from a different phone number. Leave a voice mail message and then go into the voice mail and delete the message that you just left. The indicator light should then go out.

Mitel 5224 keeps flashing message but is no message

This sounds like you have a call back message active on your phone, The callback is a through back to the days before we had Voice-mail, if you wanted a person to call you back you could activate their message light by pressing your message key while the called phone was ringing. To remove the light you would lift your handset and press the message key then select which party you wished to "callback", once the call was answered at the other end the light would be extinguished. Give this a try, I bet you will be surprised at the results.
