Please report to the Helpdesk any/all occurrences of your voicemail light not working following the Wednesday, June 10 evening reset of the voicemail system.

Until we are able to confirm that Spirit has made successful repairs and notify you to that effect, you should occasionally check for voicemail messages even though your voicemail waiting light is not on.

The voicemail message waiting lights on the system that services the College, The Citadel, and other local state agencies continue to experience sporadic outages. The Wednesday evening maintenance effort of the state’s telephone and voicemail provider, Spirit Communications, was not completely successful. IT is monitoring the situation and will keep you informed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Information Technology Helpdesk at (843) 953-3375 or by emailing

Due to the power outages experienced during Winter Break, issues have been reported with some College desktop telephone sets. The speaker lights may be flashing or the voice-mail message light may not be working properly. If you experience either of these issues please e-mail or call 953-3375 option #2. If you send an e-mail please make sure to include the number of the telephone you are reporting. Employees who have voice-mail set up should check it for missed messages.
