Universal Messaging (UMS)
Service category: Communikation
The UMS service enables the synchronization of messages from several channels (e.g. email, fax or telephone) and provides a higher-level and consolidated information interface. Fax or voice mail messages can be received via a central (email) account.
Note: Do not use your kiz account to login to the UMS server. Instead, enter your 5-digit telephone number as user name and your 4-digit answering machine PIN as password.
If you want to access it from outside the university campus, access is only possible via VPN connection.
