(September 2009)

The BPS phone system was recently upgraded and although a fix is in process, the purple message button only gives partial instructions for use. It says “please enter your password”. What it fails to say is “press *(star) to access another mailbox”.

These instructions can be followed, until the computer prompt message is fixed.


To access your mailbox from a classroom phone, or from a different instrument than at an administrative desk:

1. Press the purple button on the phone
2. Press *
3. Enter your mailbox number
4. Press #
5. Enter your password.


To access your mailbox from home:
1. Dial 248.203.4000
2. Press #
3. Enter your mailbox number
4. Press #
5. Enter your password.
