We have a hundred year old voice-mail system at work. The one feature I really, really want in a new system is for it to automatically delete hang-ups. I get tons of calls everyday from unknown numbers. I suspect they are sales calls, so I don't answer. The calls go to voice-mail. They stay on the line long enough so that I get to hear them typing (or other background conversations when they are in a call center), but then hang-up without really leaving a message.

I want the new system to zap those without me ever having to check them. Do any voice-mail systems do that today?


  1. Is there a function to set minimum message length? Since your system is old probably not.

    1. Great idea. I'll have to check - that would eliminate a lot of the problems.
