  1. Hi Phil , I know this is a old post , but does this plugin work with Lotus Notes 8.5.3 FP2? I have installed the plugin , but Voice Mail tab just says "connecting to voicemail"


    1. @Mani The current version of the plug-in does work with Notes 8.5.3 FP2. Make sure that you have correctly configured: 1) the unity server info, 2) your unity credentials, and 3) that you can access the unity server from where you are on the network (you may need to VPN into your corporate network if you are accessing from outside).

  2. HI Phil thanks you so much for replying , does this plugin or the new V9.5.1 plugin support Unity server 7 ? . Currently we use Ducs to access voicemail does this in anyway hamper access through the plugin.

    I will be most grateful if you can point to any resources I could access for help with this as I am a domino/notes person and have very limited knowledge of Cisco. Thank you in advance
