- Email tab
- Retention tab
- Transcript tab
- Escalation tab
- Portal tab
- License tab
- About tab
SQL tab: Save Voicemail information in SQL Server #
- In the SQL tab, under SQL Server section, check Save voicemail details in SQL check box to save the voicemail information in Microsoft SQL Server.
- Click the Import button to add existing voicemails to the web portal and archive the voicemails (if the archive option was selected from the Retention tab). While the location where 3CX stores voicemails is not modifiable, you can choose the location where voicemails should be archived.
- The “Processing Complete” confirmation message box appears. Click OK.
If you have a large number of existing voicemails, you may want to wait until after business hours to select this option. Processing a large number of voicemails may impact the performance of 3CX.
3CX tab: Set Manager Rights, Voicemail Path, Authentication #
3CX Voicemail Manager integrates directly with 3CX. For example, the web portal uses your extension and voicemail PIN for login authentication. If permitted, access to voicemails other than your own is controlled by extension group membership and whether you are an extension group Manager. 3CX System Administrators always have access to all voicemails.
Manager Rights #
Under Manager Rights section, check Allow Managers to access Extension Group member’s voicemails check box to permit 3CX Extension Group Managers to view the voicemails for every member of their extension group. Non-managers can only see their own voicemails.
Voicemail Path #
Under Voicemail Path section, browse and set the location where you want the original voicemails to be stored. By default, the location is:
You should NOT change the path to the 3CX voicemails unless you are running 3CX Voicemail Manager on a computer other than the 3CX server. Remember 3CX Voicemail Manager by default runs with the credentials of a local user (VoIPToys). You must ensure this user has read rights to this folder or provide alternative authentication.
If you have installed “3CX Voicemail Manager” on a remote computer you will need to create a Windows share pointing to the voicemail path, and provide authentication credentials to access the share. If you are using a firewall on your 3CX server, you may need to create a firewall exception to permit remote access to the share.
- Under Authentication section, check Requires local Windows credentials box to provide local user rights on the remote server.
If your file share resides on a remote server, and the two servers are not members of the same Active Directory Domain, you will need to provide local user rights on the remote server.
- In the 3CX Server field, enter the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) or IP address of the 3CX server.
- In the User Name field, enter username and password for authentication.
- Click Test button to test whether the credentials provided have access to the voicemail path.
- Click Save to save the details you entered.
Email tab: Setup Email Server #
3CX Voicemail Manager can email your voicemails, along with a text transcript to you automatically. You have 3 choices:
- Email voicemails to the owner of the voicemail, or
- Also email all voicemails to a single email address, or
- Do not email voicemails
In the Email tab, you can do the following functions,
Email Voicemail Transcripts #
- Under Email Server section, check Email Voicemail Transcript check box if you want to email Voicemails and optionally include a text transcript
- In the Email Server field, enter IP address or ‘Fully Qualified Domain Name’ (FQDN) of your email server.
- Examples: smtp.gmail.com or 192.168.1.20
- In the Port field, enter the port number.
- The default value is 25.
- For Gmail/ Google Apps use port 587
- In the Email From field, enter the email address to use as the “from” email address.
- Note that your SMTP server may require a valid email address be used.
- For example: firstname.lastname@example.org
- In the Email Subject field, enter the emails subject.
- The default subject is “New Voicemail from [CALLERID], [DATE], [TIME]”.
- You can include any of the 3 available replaceable variables [CALLERID],[DATE] or [TIME]. Placing these exact string variables in the subject line will cause the variables to be replaced with the current caller information.
- In the Alt Email field, enter an email address (example: email@example.com) if you want all voicemails sent to a single email address. To only have emails sent to the owner of the voicemail, leave this field blank.
Set Authentication to Relay emails #
- Check Requires Authentication check box if your mail server requires authentication to relay emails.
- Enter credentials in the User ID and Password fields. You can click button to display password characters.
- Select Requires SSL/ TLS check box if your mail server requires a secure connection – Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) to relay email. Gmail, Google Apps and Microsoft 365 require a secure connection.
- Click Test button to confirm whether 3CX Voicemail Manager can send emails.
- For this, temporarily enter an email address in the Alt Email field and press the Test button.
- You may need to make configuration changes to your mail server to permit the relay of emails from 3CX Voicemail Manager.
Sending mail within your domain may not require authentication, while sending outside your domain may require authentication.
Voicemail to Email #
- Check Attach voicemail using MP3 format (much smaller than WAV) check box to email the .MP3 version.
- Because voicemails can be very large, 3CX Voicemail Manager can first make a copy of the voicemail and then convert the copy to .MP3 format and email the .MP3 version.
- The MP3 is often is 1/7 the size of the original voicemail. This conversion does result in a small loss in audio quality. However, the original voicemail can be heard or downloaded from the web portal unless it was deleted by the retention policy, the owner or an administrator.
Retention tab: Configure Retention Policy #
3CX Voicemail Manager can be configured to automatically delete old voicemails, thus helping to conserve disk space. It can also automatically convert voicemails to MP3 format and save the voicemails at an alternate location (for example: external USB or Network Attached Storage NAS device). You can also have voicemails deleted after emailing the voicemail.
Delete Policy #
- Check Delete voicemail after sending email check box to instruct the 3CX Voicemail Manager to delete the voicemail after emailing the voicemail as an attachment.
Great care should be taken when selecting this option. There is no guarantee that the email will not be blocked by spam filters, or exceed the maximum attachment size permitted by the receiving mail server.
- Check Delete voicemail if older than: check box if you want 3CX Voicemail Manager to automatically delete voicemails that are older than the specified number of days.
- Enter the number of days in the Days field so that all the voicemails older than the number of days specified will be deleted. The current date is compared with the date the voicemail was created. All voicemails older than the number of days selected will be deleted. This setting is for all voicemails made by all extensions.
If you choose to archive voicemails, the archived version of the voicemail will not be deleted.
- Check Remove Voicemails from SQL based on Deletion settings check box if you want the deleted voicemails to be also deleted from SQL. Deleting the records from SQL will remove any history for the voicemails in the web portal.
- Enter time in the Delete at field so that the voicemails will be deleted once a day at the specified time (except for voicemails deleted after email which happens immediately).
Archive Policy #
- Check the Archive check box if you want to make a compressed (MP3) copy of all voicemails.
- In the Archive Path field, enter the location where you want to store all the archived voicemails. Archived voicemails will be saved in .MP3 format and are NOT affected by the Delete Policy.
- Use the browse button to browse to the location where archived voicemails will be saved.
3CX Voicemail Manager by default runs with the credentials of a local user (VoIPToys). If you choose to save archives on a different server, will need to adjust permissions on the archive folder, or change the credentials used by 3CX Voicemail Manager’s:
- Windows service
- IIS application pool
Transcript tab: Configure Transcription Settings #
The accuracy of voice recognition can be greatly affected by a number of factors. For example, the quality of the recording, background noise, volume of the speaker, and the speech patterns of the speaker can all have a significant impact on the accuracy of the transcription.
Speech Transcriptions #
3CX Voicemail Manager uses Google Speech Translate for voice transcriptions.To enable and perform transcriptions, mention the ‘Google Speech Service Account File’ path that consists of google credentials and then mention the ‘Cloud Storage Bucket’ name where you want to store the transcriptions. If you do not have Cloud Storage Bucket and the respective Service Account file, you can create one and then add them in the configuration file.
Cloud Speech-To-Text is priced monthly based on the amount of audio successfully processed by the service, measured in increments rounded up to 15 seconds. For more details regarding pricing, please go through this link: https://cloud.google.com/speech-to-text/pricing
Voicemail Manager uses your local file copy to transcribe the audio file if its duration is upto 60 seconds; or uses google cloud storage if the duration is beyond 60 seconds with the help of cloud storage buckets. Once the file is transcribed successfully in the google cloud, the Voicemail Manager deletes the file from the storage bucket.
Escalation tab: Configure Voicemail Escalation #
While 3CX Extension Managers administer the escalation feature using the web portal, there is one default settings: ‘Sleep Seconds’ that can be changed here. This setting instructs Voicemail Manager to wait a number seconds before processing a new voicemail. 3CX caches the entire voicemail in memory until the caller hangs up, or the maximum voicemail length is reached, then the entire voicemail is written to disk. This process usually takes a few milliseconds, but it’s a best practice to give the operating system time to finish writing the file and release the lock on the file before attempting to attach the recording to an email.
Configure Sleep Seconds #
Under the Voicemail Escalation section, in the Sleep Seconds field, enter the number of seconds so that the Voicemail Manager can wait for the specified time before processing a new voicemail.
Most of the configuration options for voicemail escalation have been moved to the web portal.
Portal tab: Configure Portal Settings #
The 3CX Voicemail Manager web portal enables you to easily find voicemail using the built-in query manager. From the portal, you can listen to, download, email, forward, and delete voicemails.
From here, you can connect to web portal, select Default Time Zone, Culture and Authentication method.

Simply create a “Sales” extension group in 3CX, assign all the sales extensions to this group, then configure the group for escalation. With escalation, any extensions in this group will be monitored for unheard voicemails. If an unheard voicemail is detected, the voicemail will be escalated automatically to the designated email addresses.
