I run a pest control company and it's important that we have emergency afterhours response in that event that a live animal is caught in a trap. I want to create a setup where the user will hear something like "You have reached our office. Press 1 if this is an emergency or wait to leave a voicemail in our general mailbox." If they don't press 1 they're then forwarded to the general voicemail box. If they press 1 they're forwarded to a different voicemail box.

Should be able to build message only mailboxes if that's what you'd like. This way when they're named like 911 mailbox or something you'll know when you get the email.

Hey Michael,

You can learn more about Message-Only Extensions here :)

Also, you can use a Multi-Level IVR to achieve this setup - depending upon if you have that activated or not.
