Addmailbox


#1

I’ve been using the guide at automated.it/guidetoasterisk.htm and it’s all going well with Micronet SP5100 phones. It tells me to run the addmailbox script which doesn’t exist in the stated spot, but I found it elsewhere. It refuses to run at all. I found a refernce on another forum that said this is an old instruction and not required anymore. Does this mean that if I add the approriate lines to the conf files to enable a mailbox the required files will magically appear where they need to go in each mailbox, or is there some file moving required?

Thanks for you advice

Andrew

you can ignore

[quote]# /usr/src/asterisk/addmailbox

You’ll be prompted for a mailbox number,

Enter mailbox number:

for now enter 9999 and hit return. This will copy a number of files required for the mailbox. Voicemail files can be found in

/var/spool/asterisk/vm/

each mailbox has is a subdirectory from this point, so mailbox 9999 is

/var/spool/asterisk/vm/9999/[/quote]

just follow the instructions after that

OK, can you tell me then where in my computer does asterisk saves voicemail files? Can I chose where I wish to save them? Any documentation?
