Abstract

A method is described which allows various functions of a PC, PC/XT, PC/AT answering machine to be remotely selected. In particular, the caller is permitted to change the meaning of the telephone touchpad; otherwise, only ten functions would be available without requiring multiple key sequences to request a function.
