A live caller is given the option to hear other members' mailboxes, where they can leave a recorded message to be retrieved by the mailbox owner next time he connects to the system.
The phone systems will usually allow users hear a chatline greeting example so the caller can get an idea of what he is expected to say.
Profanity and sexual references are typically not allowed, the chatline moderator's job is to listen and approve every greeting that is recorded.
