Configure Protected Voice Mail from authenticated callers
You can configure Unified Messaging to answer an incoming call, and then determine whether it will apply protection to voice mail messages by using encryption. When a voice message is protected:
The message is marked as Private in Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Web App.
The voice message can be opened only by the intended recipient of the voice message.
The recipient can reply to the voice message, but can't forward it to someone who wasn't included on the original voice message.
This setting applies to voice messages sent to UM-enabled users when they don't answer their phone. This setting also applies when callers sign in to their mailbox using Outlook Voice Access, and then create and send a voice message.
