Messaging On The InterTel Axxess 550.8560 Phone

The InterTel Axxess 550.8560 phone is a cost-effective option for business offices. Users appreciate the smart design, ease of use, and convenient features that the InterTel Axxess 550.8560 phone provides. Among the features is system messaging, which allows you to leave messages for others and set reminders for yourself.

Inter-station messages are alerts sent to your phone by other internal parties, notifying you to contact the party who left the message. The Message button and Message Indicator lamp notify you of the new message. You can then either delete the message or reply to the message, which automatically places a call to the party who left the message.

You can leave inter-station or voice mail messages for other internal parties.

To leave an inter-station or voice mail message for a busy IC extension:

  1. Press MSG of the LEAVE MESSAGE menu button. HANG UP OR WAIT FOR MSG CENTER appears.
  2. Do one of the following:
