Voicemail and Unified Messaging


UBC IT provides voicemail and Unified Messaging services to the university. UBC currently provides two types of service:

  • Unified Messaging: Integrates voice mail with email. Voice mail messages and options can be accessed via Outlook, Outlook Web Access, and over the phone.

Important: Available only to subscribers who have a FASmail account. Currently UBC IT is in the process of rolling out FASmail to all departments, therefore not all staff members will be eligible for Unified Messaging at this point in time.
