  voice mail
  phone mail
  
      Any system for sending, storing and
     retrieving audio messages, like a telephone answering
     machine.
  
     A voice mailbox is typically associated with a telephone
     number or extension.  When the number is called and the line
     is busy or not answered, the caller hears a message left by
     the owner and is given instructions for leaving a message or
     other available options, such as paging the individual or
     being transferred to an operator.  The owner of a mailbox can
     change the outgoing message or listen to incoming messages
     after entering a PIN.  Members of a voice mail system can
     generally forward or broadcast messages to other members'
     boxes.
  
     The experience of two people trying to reach other by
     telephone but always reaching each other's voice mail is
     referred to as "(tele)phone tag".
