Meaning of Voice Mail
Voice mail is a kind of e-communication where a person sends messages orally to others. It is similar to e-mail with the difference that voice-mail is an oral where as e-mail is a written medium of electronic communication. It requires a computer, a voice recorder, and telephone connection to store the oral message in digital form. It is a very useful means of transmitting short oral message to someone who is not immediately available. Now a day, people can also send voice mail over their cellular phones.
