IMPORTANT:

In order to better utilize the WesTel voicemail system, all users are required to identify their mailbox with their correct first and last names in the "name" portion of the greeting. This is necessary to let people know they are sending messages to the correct person. Do not initialize your mailbox with a false or "funny" name. Your "personal" greeting is optional, and may be recorded at your discretion.
