    take a message/ is there a message

    If I worked at the reception desk in a hotel and a person who was staying there wanted to pass info on to another person, I would ask something like 1)"Can I take a message?"

    If I was a person who was expacting info, I would come up to the reception desk and ask 2)"Is there a message for Mr....?"

    Though I would never use 2) for 1), am I right?
