Voicemail to email as an option can be helpful if you are away from your handset and you need to know when you have received a voice mail message. This service will provide an email message with an attached file that contains a copy of the voicemail message. There is no message transcription available with this service, only the audio file attachment. The voicemail box will retain the message, unless you choose to delete the message from the link in the email. You can also delete the messages locally at the handset if necessary. It is possible to fill the voicemail box so users of this service should be diligent in removing saved voicemail messages.
