Set your voicemail password

  1. If calling from an MHC campus phone or softphone, dial *17
  2. If calling from an external phone, dial 413-538-2660 then choose 1 if you're trying to access an individual faculty/staff inbox or 3 if you're trying to access a department's inbox 
  3. Enter your extension number and the # sign (If calling from your extension, just press #)
  4. When prompted for your password press # only, as you do not yet have a password (or your password was just reset)
  5. Next, you will be prompted to enter a new password, which must be at least 6-digits
  6. Enter your new password and # sign
  7. You will be prompted to re-enter your new password and # sign
