I just wrote an email where I was sharing someone's voicemail greeting, but instead of referring to it as a voicemail greeting, I simply called it a voicemail.
I called this number and it left a voice mail telling me to call his cell phone.
Am I using voicemail correctly here? Or should I have said "voice mail greeting" instead? The former came to mind automatically, so I wrote that in my email. But I realized after writing it that it could easily be confused with the voicemail you leave on someone's answering machine.
What would you call a voice mail greeting? Would you call it a voice mail greeting, a voice mail, or an answering message? Are all three equally acceptable?
