I would like the ability to setup notifications in my 3com NBX 100 phone system to send text messages to people on their cell phones once they receive a voicemail.

Can you tell me if this is possible and where to set it up?

Thanks,
Bob

Do you have the unified messaging feature that sends VM messages to a user's email box?  If so, we have a client that set up the Exchange mailbox to send an SMS message to the cell phone - this works regardless of the phone system but does require the unified messaging feature.

Yes I do - currently they are receiving emails with the voicemail attached. How do you setup the Exchange mailbox to send an SMS message?

With voice mail already integrated with outlook&.

Create a new email rule that forwards emails containing specific words to your phone email address. You specify words such as voice message, Voice mail etc that shows on the subject line, or something unique in the message body if the subject line is blank.  Whatever your system used to flage the messages.

 Forward the emails to your phones email address which is <your 10 digit phone number>@<your carriers mail/text domain>  example 1234567890@tmomail.net for a t-mobile subscriber.

Please see the link below for correct carrier addresses:

The message will be converted to sms and forwarded to any phone.  In some cases you use the MMS (multi-media) address setting, others the standard SMS (text) address works.

With some Outlook boxes, we had to forward the message as an attachment to get it to work.  Not sure why, but it works.  :)
The rule works even when the PC is shut off.
