Hi andreasho,
Welcome to fixya, It's pleasure helping out others and our motto is to provide perfect and precise solution. Here's your solution.
changing the initial PARTNER Voice Messaging settings as well as general instructions for programming and managing PARTNER Voice Messaging. The order of the procedures in this section enables you to record the Automated Attendant Menu Prompt, change the system configuration size, and change the assignments for the mailboxes before PARTNER Voice Messaging begins to handle calls—this order is recommended to ensure that calls are handled correctly for the subscribers who require voice mail coverage. You should have all completed voice messaging system and communications system planning forms available for reference. When you complete all programming, perform the system programming verification procedures posted as # 2
To ensure that your voice messaging system operates correctly, you must first assign extensions 78 and 79, which are associated with PARTNER Voice Messaging, to Hunt Group 7 according to the following procedure (#505).
Assigning VMS Hunt Group Extensions (#505) Perform this procedure first, before logging into PARTNER Voice Messaging, for new installations. To assign voice messaging system extensions 78 and 79 to Hunt Group 7: 1. Press #505. 2. At the Group: prompt, press 7. 3. At the Extension: prompt, enter 78 for the first extension number assigned to PARTNER Voice Messaging as shown on the System Extensions Form. 4. Press D until the display reads 1 Assigned. 5. Press n to display extension 79 (the second extension number assigned to PARTNER Voice Messaging as shown on the System Extensions Form). 6. Press D until the display reads 1 Assigned
Using PARTNER Voice Messaging System Programming The System Manager’s mailbox (Mailbox 0) is a special mailbox that is used to program PARTNER Voice Messaging. The System Manager uses this mailbox to: ■ Assign mailboxes to the PARTNER communications system extensions. ■ Change the system configuration (that is, number of mailboxes). ■ Record a menu prompt (up to two minutes long). ■ Assign Selector Codes (that is, the first digit the caller dials in response to the menu prompt). ■ Initialize a mailbox (to prepare it for use by a new subscriber). ■ Change the System Manager’s password for the System Manager’s mailbox (0). ■ Reinitialize passwords for mailboxes if a subscriber forgets the password. The factory-set password for the System Manager’s mailbox is 1234. See You can use these tips for more efficient programming: ■ You do not have to wait for a prompt to play before entering digits for the next step. ■ Press *7 at any point during programming to return to the Programming Main Menu. ■ To ensure that you hear voice prompts, turn off your microphone if using the speakerphone. ■ To avoid background noise in your recordings, use the handset rather than the speakerphone when recording greetings. ■ Hang up to exit programming.
Assigning a Mailbox to an Extension Before you begin, locate Form 1: Mailbox Assignments for PARTNER Voice Messaging. Check to see whether the system configuration (that is, the number of mailboxes supported) or mailbox assignments have been changed from the factory settings. If factory settings are not changed, skip to “Recording the Automated Attendant Menu Prompt.” If the mailbox has not been initialized, the system notifies you that the mailbox must be reinitialized before you can change the mailbox assignment. Refer to “Reinitializing a Mailbox” for instructions. Then repeat this procedure. You can reassign each mailbox to any extension (10 through 41 for PARTNER ACS, or 10 through 49 for all other PARTNER systems supported). Assign mailboxes to extensions as specified on Form 1: 1. Log into System Administration according to the appropriate procedure. 2. Press 1 to assign mailboxes to extensions. 3. Refer to Form 1 and do one of the following: — For PARTNER Voice Messaging Release 2.0, enter the two-digit mailbox number (01-04). — For PARTNER Voice Messaging Release 3.0 or later, enter the mailbox number and press #. If the mailbox is already assigned to an extension, the system plays the current assignment and then plays: To modify, enter new extension and # sign. To exit without changing, enter *#. 4. Enter the new extension assignment for the mailbox, followed by #. 5. Repeat Steps 2 through 4 for each mailbox assignment to be changed.
Although Most of the sites never provide the resource from where they were able to help you out but It's not so at fixya. Hence, I'm providing the link to all the programming instructions for your further usage.
Save it on your pc for further use.
Thanks again for using fixya.

You are going to need to get into programming.

You need to do that for all lines. That will make it go to the Auto attendant instead of the mailbox.

Right, but to get to the Admin area, you need to log into the system administrators mailbox. That will need to be reset before you can change the AA greeting.

I bought a used avaya partner phone system online. It came with Partner mail vs module... I cannot access the menu for voice mail to set it up... Avaya directions say pressing (intercom) 777 but all I get...

Did you really think it was going to be that easy?

You have to program the VS in the proper hunt group (7) to make it work. For example, if you put it in the 2nd slot, because it was only a 2-slot carrier, it would become extensions 22 and 23 on a 2-port license and 20-23 on a 4-port. The Partner Mail is installed to the right of any 206 or 400 cards, so that you don't have any holes in the extension numbering plan.

Here's a manual for the VS R4. It should work for your system for the basic installation.

Page 35 is your installation information and page 50 tells you how to program the ACS.

Good luck.

You don't need the 400 module for the voicemail. Therefore, you also don't need the 2 slot carrier either.

Checking voice mail from remote location

If you are using Partner voicemail, you would just press *7 when you hear the voicemail system.

If you press *7, and do not get prompted for the extension number, you dont have a Partner voicemail.
