The students can get their AT&T ACUS authorization codes by calling 1-800-445-6063.

Family Mailbox greeting is the greeting that callers get when they dialed your phone number.  It can be, for example, "You have reached the voicemail of John and Mike.  Press "1" to leave a message for John.  Press "2" to leave a message for Mike."  

Individual Mailbox greeting is what the callers get after they pressed "1" or "2".  It is the student's individual greeting which you record yourself.

For Doubles, one of the students will need to record the Family Mailbox greeting.  Then each of the two students will need to record their Individual Mailbox greetings.
