Review the voice mail calls in your organization
You can use the Call Statistics report to view information about the type and status of incoming calls handled by the Exchange servers in your organization. The report provides statistical information about the calls forwarded to or placed by Unified Messaging (UM) for your organization. You can use this information to track usage for capacity planning, monitor and troubleshoot the availability and audio quality of UM, and to troubleshoot failed calls.

How do I interpret UM call statistics?
The UM Call Statistics report includes the following information:
DATE The UTC date for the call data. The date format depends on the type of report you've chosen and your locale settings. You can choose from the following options:
--- All calls are shown.
MMM/YY The month of the calls. For example, Jan/13.
MM/DD/YY The day of the calls. For example, 6/23/13.
TOTAL The total number of calls for the selected UM dial plan or UM IP gateway for that date.
VOICE MESSAGE The percentage of incoming calls answered by UM on behalf of users in which callers left a voice message.
MISSED The percentage of incoming calls answered by UM on behalf of users in which callers didn't leave a voice message, resulting in a missed call notification.
OUTLOOK VOICE ACCESS The percentage of incoming calls where users signed in to UM (and were authenticated) to access their email messages, calendars, and voice messages.
OUTGOING The percentage of calls that were placed or transferred by UM on behalf of authenticated or unauthenticated users. This statistic includes Find Me, Play on Phone, and Play on Phone Greetings call types.
AUTO ATTENDANT The percentage of incoming calls that were answered by UM auto attendants.
FAX The percentage of incoming calls that were redirected to a fax partner.
OTHER The percentage of any other incoming or placed calls that do not fall in any of the above categories. These calls include calls made to Outlook Voice Access numbers where the users didn't sign in and weren't authenticated.
FAILED OR REJECTED The percentage of calls that either failed or were rejected by UM. Note that failed calls aren't counted twice. For example, if a call to Outlook Voice Access fails, it is only counted as a Failed call, and not also as an Outlook Voice Access call.
AUDIO QUALITY A graphical representation of the overall audio quality for the selected period of time for the organization.
