Using a 1080 mailbox
Forwarding to DTAD mailbox
About forwarding to DTAD
If at least one 1080 telephone is designated to be
used as an auto-attendant (if you have the 1080 us-
er's manual, read it for more details), you can desig-
nate the auto-attendant telephone as a DTAD (Digital
Telephone Answering Device) mailbox for the 1070 or
1040 telephones in the same system.
When the DTAD mailbox is designated, the answer-
ing system of the DTAD mailbox 1080 telephone can
answer calls transferred by the auto-attendant sys-
tem and record caller’s messages for its DTAD system
extensions. These messages are called system exten-
sion messages. For more details, refer to the 1080
user's manual.
If the DTAD mailbox is designated, a DTAD system
extensions will display its messages counter
DTAD:XX/YY on its screen. The person on a DTAD
system extension 1040 telephone can access the
DTAD mailbox 1080 telephone to play back messag-
es and record memos (see Listening to messages
- internal access on page 44).
