To put the message in a specific mail box, the caller needs to press *1, *2 or *3 (touch tone phone) before leaving their message. (Of course the answering system has to pick up before the key stroke.) Obviously the number corresponds to the mail box that will get the message.
So if you want to include these directions in your outgoing message, you would need to add something like "To leave a message for John press Star 1, for Sam press Star 2" when you record the ogm.
When you are away, you call your number. After the answering machine asks you to leave a message, punch your code and listen to the instructions (hear new messages, hear all messages, erase message, de/activate answering function, etc.).
The answering machine is most likely referring to the other mail boxes. if a caller presses 1 or 2 they record in the other mail boxes.On the machine you will see an envelope with a 1 or a 2 next to the envelope. Press and hold one of these mail boxes and when the messages are played press del to delete each message as it plays. Do this for each mail box. Have this answering machine and have experienced this problem.
Well, your machine might be broken, or you haven't set the little switch on the unit to ANS.The switch is on the side of the machine where the cables come out.But here are the instructions from the manual:
Recording Outgoing Messages:
Your answering machine has a built-in outgoing message, "Hello, please leave a message after the tone."You can use this message or record your own.
1. Hold the ANNC/DAY/<<, and speak clearly into the microphone, no more than 10 inches away.
2. Release the ANNC/DAY/<< when you finish.Your answering machine beeps and automatically plays back your recorded message.
*Your outgoing message must be between one and 60 seconds.
*If you record your won message but wish to revert to the pre-recorded message, press DELETE during playback of your outgoing message.
If the system is disconnected from the AC power it will not operate. Your announcemen and messages are retained in memory during a power failure but you will need to reset the clock. See the instructions on the bottom of the unit. If the message window displays CL, you need to reset the clock. See the instruction on the bottom of the unit.
