How do I change my voicemail password?

Voicemail settings can be altered via Account Manager; the 8x8 Virtual Office Desktop and Online applications; and your either mobile or desk phone.

Voicemail passwords are first set by the account administrator when creating user profiles for extensions.

To change your voicemail password from your phone:

1. Access the voicemail system:

  • From your own extension
    Dial 555 and enter your current voicemail password.
  • From another extension in your system
    Dial 500, enter your extension number, then enter your current voicemail password.
  • From an outside line*
    Dial your 10-digit phone number. At your voicemail greeting, press the # key, then enter your current voicemail password.

*Note: In your call forwarding rules, make sure “no answer” calls are set to go to voicemail.

2. Once connected, press the * key to enter the Main Menu.

3. From the Main Menu:

  • Press 3 to enter the User Preference Options sub-menu.
  • Press 1 to change your voicemail password. Follow the audio prompts until complete.
  • Press 9 to exit voicemail.
