How to Change Voicemail Greetings

Introduction
The default voicemail greeting on MyPBX is fine but it is rather bland and quite boring. You can customize your own voicemail greetings.
In this guide, we introduce two methods to change voicemail greetings:

  1. Record new messages on your handset and replace the default greeting with the new one.
  2. Replace the default greetings with an existing audio file.

Use an Existing Audio File as one Voicemail Greeting
If you want to upload your audio file to MyPBX and use it as one voicemail greeting, you need to log in MyPBX via FTP to change the default Voicemail greetings.
Before logging in MyPBX via FTP, please make sure that FTP is enabled on MyPBX. (System→Network Preferences→LAN Settings)
