Is it possible to have the email notifications emailed to two different addresses instead of just one? Can i just use some type of syntax in the email address section to have to emails or is this not an option at present. If its not an option perhaps this could be looked into in the future as in a family of 4 it seems strange that only one person should know that their is a new message.

Try a semicolon.  Do not know if it will work, but it should as that is how you separate addresses in e-mail.

Hmm, good try but that didnt work...
This is the error:
Failed to modify: [Error 4801] Invalid email address. The email address can contain only one @ and A-Z, a-z, 0-9, ! # $ % & * + - / = _ { } | ~ ` . ? ^ or single quotes.
The one @ symbol makes me think its designed only for one email, so is likely to be a decent change needed to have more than one.

You could get it sent to a Gmail account and make it filter and forward out the messages to other emails.

I do that with some of my mail which has to be shared with my family.

You can set both "email notify" & "email carbon copy"; that gives you two email addresses. Carbon copy to your main email address with the VM attached, then just the notify option to a secondary address - they can then dial in to VM.
Oh, and of course the old fashion way - the message waiting indicator or stutter tone.

That's the thing with technology; "oh cool, you mean I can now receive voicemail by email, that's awesome"
- oh can it delete them off the VM system when I've listened in VM
- oh and I want it to go to six different email addresses
- oh and audio msg it to my cellphone please
- oh and txt notify me too
- oh and yes of course I'll have fies with that

Yep, the wish list will never end.
