The Voicemail Manager can be used to listen to voicemail and manage mailbox messages. The extensions or phone numbers assigned to the Voicemail Manager can be found on the "Resources" page by clicking on "voicemail.management" in the list of resources. By default the Voicemail Manager gets extension '*98' and can be dialed directly or through any attendant menu that has enabled extension dialing.
