|Check your office phone voice mail settings||Check that your voice mail is going to your Outlook Inbox (this is the default). Call your office phone and leave a message; if it comes to your Inbox you are good to go!
If you want to answer your calls as they come in, forward your calls to your mobile or landline phone (optional).
