  Just for clarrity's sake.... a "regular" voicemail is read with a phone 
hand-set?  If so, why would these "non-unified"  users need an account in AD?
Thanks, Robert

We recently moved over to Cisco's Unity messaging and are using it w/
Exchange.  Unity requires an Exchange store to keep the voicemails in,
whether it is local to the Unity server or the Exchange server for the
Voicemails are kept on the Exchange server for the company for us.  We
use two different "flavors" of Unity.  Unified Messaging is where the
voicemail actually comes into the users mailbox and just regular
voicemail for some users.

Those that have PCs or laptops, w/ speakers, use Unified Messaging and
those that are on WinTerms use just regular voicemail.  For those that
are Unified Messaging, their voicemail box is their Exchange box.  For
those non-unified we have created a seperate user in AD,
(firstnamelastname) no spaces, with a seperate email box.  Then in Unity
we uncheck the list in global address box portion of it.

IT works nice and smooth and just keeps trucking away
