SOG Unix Phone Mail Distribution List
When the SOGS Unix systems go down due to difficulties with the system
or power failures, it is necessary to keep all users informed of the
down time. Since email cannot be used in this situation, a Phone Mail
distribution list has been created with each SOGS Unix user's name and
Normally Tony Roman or one of the System Leads will initiate this
procedure. However, if these peopple are unavaillable (vacation,
after hours, etc.), please take the initiative to see that the users
are informed (but be sure we don't send multiple messages!).
Below are instructions on how to deliver a message to the Distribution
Of course, if SOGS Unix is down, its unlikely you'll be able to get
to this Web page, so just remember the phone list number!
- Activate the Phone Mail system (x1234)
- When prompted, press 1 to record the message
- When prompted, enter the Distribution List number: 500
- Exit Phone mail and your message will be sent.
