About the Connection SRSV Conversation

When you access Cisco Unity Connection SRSV by phone, you hear the Connection SRSV conversation. Its recorded instructions and prompts guide you to receive messages. You can use any phone to access Connection SRSV.

You can use Connection SRSV by phone using:

Phone Keypad

Press the keys on the phone keypad


Using the Phone Keypad with the Connection SRSV Conversation

There are several versions of the Connection SRSV conversation, each providing different keypad mappings for the Connection SRSV menu options. (For example, you might press 3 to delete a message in one version but press 7 to delete a message in another version.)

Your Connection SRSV administrator determines the conversation version that you hear. Typically, an administrator will select a conversation that has a keypad mapping that is familiar to you. Ask your Connection SRSV administrator which conversation you are set up to use.

Managing Receipts

As you work with Cisco Unity Connection SRSV, you may manage the following types of receipts:

NondeliveryReciept message that informs you when your message could not be delivered to the intended recipient.

When you check messages, Connection SRSV plays receipts along with your other messages. You play and delete receipts in the same way as other messages; you cannot reply to or forward them.

For read receipts, Connection SRSV plays a list of the recipients who played the message you sent. For nondelivery receipts (NDRs), Connection SRSV identifies recipients whose mailboxes did not accept the message.

After Connection SRSV plays an NDR, you can hear the original message and resend it to the recipient(s) who failed to receive it. You can record an introduction, modify the recipient list, and change delivery options when resending a message. Once you resend the message, Connection SRSV automatically deletes the NDR.

Managing Deleted Messages

About Deleted Messages

Cisco Unity Connection SRSV saves your deleted messages; you can play, restore, or permanently delete them.

Permanently Deleting Deleted Messages

Deleting messages can be an important way to reduce the size of your mailbox, especially when Cisco Unity Connection SRSV is not set up to automatically delete messages once they reach a certain age.

Ask your Connection SRSV administrator if the system is set up to enforce a message-retention policy. Connection SRSV does not indicate when a message-retention policy is enforced, nor does it warn you before messages are permanently deleted as a result of such a policy. If Connection SRSV is not set up to do so, make sure that you permanently delete messages periodically.

Step 1 Call and sign in to Connection SRSV.

Step 2 At the Main menu, select the option Review Old Messages, then Deleted Messages.

Step 3 Follow the prompts to review your deleted messages and delete them individually, or to delete all messages at once.


Checking Deleted Messages

You can play your deleted messages, just as you can play new and saved messages. You can also restore a deleted message as a new or saved message.

By default, the most recent messages are played first. Note that you cannot enable the Message Type menu or specify a playback order by message type for deleted messages.
