I have the same machine. There is a Function/Edit button on the upper left hand side of the unit. Every time you press the button you scroll through the functions to program the unit. Change the "remote code" to any two digit number you choose and will take care of your problem!

Look on the underside of the unit. You will see a three (3) digit number. When you remotely call your number and the answering maching picks up, immediately input the 3 digit number. The answering maching will then play the new messages for you.
There's a little door at the top part of your phone which faces you. Open that door and you will see a series of buttons with a label for each one, including one for setting the greeting. Also, on the inside of that door itself is an explanation of how to set a greeting. As for erasing messages, look at the front of your phone, with that same little door closed. now look at the top row of buttons, the second button over is the erase/save button. Pressing down the left side of the erase/save button will erase your messages. Pressing down the right side of that button will save them.
The remote function will allow you to control your answering device from anywhere. On the Phonemate brand, you simply "key in" your answering machine's PIN number when your answering machine picks up your call. From there you can playback your messages, erase messages, record a different greeting and more. On some models the "default" PIN code is stamped on the bottom of the unit. Some units have a battery backup to retain messages if you have a power outage. If your PIN code IS printed there, and you have forgotten your PIN code, simply remove the battery from the bottom of the unit, wait a minute, and reinstall the battery. Your PIN code will be reset. I have attempted to get a manual for your unit and the best on the web so far has only come up with the address as follows Phonemate Answering Machine Sales & Service Center

Radio Shack's universal (9V-13V, Model 273-1631) adapter should work fine for you. You can try setting it to the 10.2V setting, and if that doesn't work for you, you can try the 12V setting.
Given that wall current can easily fluctuate 10% or more, the 1V difference is unlikely to matter.
Make sure you get the polarity of the Adaptaplug correct -- inverting the voltage could actually damage your answering machine!
