Voicemail

Voicemail is a computerized system that enables support for answering, storing and relaying telephone call messages. Also spelled as voice mail, voicemail records and stores incoming messages, enabling playback of the messages from the same phone number or from another telephone.

Voicemail is a basic feature of most modern cellular telephones, digital phones and corporate PBX systems. More advanced forms of voicemail like visual voicemail add a visual interface and in some cases e-mail- and/or text-based transcript capabilities to standard voicemail services.
