ESNA Voicemail Setup – Accessing Your Voicemail Accounts

As part of a district phone system upgrade, we have switched to the new ESNA voicemail system. All staff members can access their voicemail accounts or mailbox using the instructions here. Please note: there are different ways to access your account depending on your location or phone extension. Please read the instructions carefully!

ESNA Voicemail Setup – Complete by Jan. 14

As part of a district phone system upgrade, we are switching to the new ESNA voicemail system.  Our present system, Call Pilot, has become obsolete. All staff members must set up their voicemails using the new ESNA system before Jan. 14.   Setup instructions are simple and the commands are very similar to the old system. The ESNA system will be fully operational on Jan. 17. We will continue to run Call Pilot in parallel with ESNA until Feb. 14, but ESNA will become your default voicemail tool. 

Setting up the ESNA voicemail system

You can begin setting up your new ESNA voicemail today.  You may access setup instructions with common operating functions here . We have also posted instructions on the IT website.  In addition, the IT Department will be distributing informational cards to all sites in January.

We are working hard to make this transition as seamless as possible. If you have questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at 28203 or Steve Benson at shbenson@aps.k12.co.us.

Beware of Email Phishing Scams

Spam or phishing email is becoming more sophisticated.  From time to time, you may receive an email requesting you to update your password or other confidential information.  Often there is a link within this email which collects information such as passwords.  The signature within this email may look official.  The following is an example of a phishing email:

Phishing Email Example

If you receive an email similar to this, one clue it is not legitimate is the sender’s email address. However, please err on the side of caution and contact the APS Help Desk at 28203 when you receive requests for confidential information. 

Email communication sent by the APS Help Desk will originate fromhelpdesk@aps.k12.co.us and the signature will always look like:
