My voicemail messages are not getting sent to my email address. Where are they?

If you've properly set up Voicemail Forwarding and you're not receiving emails, the first thing you should do is check to make sure that your email provider is not filtering messages from notify@ooma.com to your spam folder.

Note: It may take several minutes for an email or text message to reach your device.
