Are you using the built in voicemail or stand beside or 3rd party VM solution?

Did VM work for these IP phones while in your office?  Said another way, if you connect them to your office network does VM work, but just not working when outside the firewall?

I would first get them working inside your network, and then see if it works remote.

Sorry I can't help you on the specifics.  This is the type of issue I turn over the the company that supports our Mitel system.  If you are going it alone, I can offer some suggestions.

The phones and VM work while on your local network so it sounds like the settings are correct.  
The problem is likely something that is not open on your firewall.  To solve this you either need to know the correct ports or observe the traffic when it is working and then compare to the traffic when it is not working.

Use a sniffer such as wireshark to capture the traffic for voicemail when the phone is on your network.  Then do the same with the phone connecting from outside your network.
You will see errors or dropped communication (may need to sniff traffic from both ends) or back packets, blocked ports etc.
You may be able to just look at your firewall logs and see the blocked ports or blocked connection attempts.
