Voicemail is a method of storing voice messages electronically for later retrieval by intended recipients. callers leave short messages that are stored on digital media (in some older systems, on analog recording tape).

As with most communications technology, simplicity of use is a must with voice mail. early systems were complicated and cumbersome, which meant only the largest corporations could afford to buy and maintain them. PC-based systems and the plethora of service providers changed that. now it’s easy to use a voice message system, whether it’s residential voice mail, cell phone voice mail or office voice mail.
Using voice mail, for the incoming caller, is as easy as dialing a phone number and speaking. after dialing, the party’s phone will ring or, if prearranged, the call will be sent straight into voice mail. Once there, the caller will be instructed how to leave a message by the person’s outgoing message.
