Email Alerts for Voice Messages
If you have selected "Telephone and Email Notification," "Email only" or "Email and Telephone" as your voice mail delivery method, you will receive an email alert from the "ISC Voice Mail Server" each time someone leaves you a voice mail message. The alert lets you know you have messages waiting and also includes caller ID information and message length. For subscribers who have elected to receive their voice mail as email attachment, the voice mail message itself is attached as a .wav file that you can listen to online.
