JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Millions of MTN’s mobile users in South Africa now have greater control of their messaging and mailbox with a web-based management service powered by IP Unity Glenayre, Inc. The software – i-MAIL – enables users to control their voicemail, faxmail and videomail from one portal, increasing the flexibility and personalisation of messaging services.

MTN mobile subscribers in South Africa now have new ways to manage and receive their voice, video and fax messages via the MTN Web portal. Versera® MyServices and MessageMeTM, from IP Unity Glenayre, are providing the building blocks to deliver this new service.

Using i-MAIL, subscribers can set up and manage their own messaging services and options, including blocking callers from leaving voice or video messages, establishing group messaging lists, and setting up message forwarding options. The Portal’s MessageMe facility enables users to forward voice, video and fax messages to an email address or MMS-enabled handset, while the Personal Operator option allows users to transfer their calls to any other phone.

"With more and more methods of communication available – voice calls, SMS, MMS, video mail, fax, email, etc – it is increasingly important that users are able to manage the means by which they receive communications," said Ashraff Paruk, General Manager, Business Strategy and Product and Innovation, MTN South Africa. "MTN is continually seeking ways to improve our offering to customers, and IP Unity Glenayre’s solution has enabled us to give our subscribers a more personalised messaging service."
