I did a search and didn’t fine any reference to this, so here it goes.

How can I fix the voicemail system so it doesn’t say…


when I go to check the messages?

Not the distinct lack of the “P”. The system seems to cut that off. I do have a 1 second wait set up before the voicemail is called. What else can I do?


I’m pretty sure this is a bug in Asterisk. I had this happen on my system. You can fix it two ways.

try doing an answer before the wait

exten => _X!,1,Answer
exten => _X!,2,Wait(1)
exten => _X!,3,Background(file)


playback a blank audio file that is 1 second long

exten => _X!,1,Playback(my-blank-file)
exten => _X!,2,Background(file)

what release is this? this seems to be triggered by the ADSI code in asterisk. i worked around it by patching the res/res_adsi.c file, but supposedly for you can set ‘adsi=no’ in the context for the extension you call in via…

As to the release, I’m at 1 .4.10 and I’m about to go to 1.4.11

I will try the recommended solutions above. Ideally, I’d like to be able to get into the VM app, but NOT have to build one with rules. Some middle ground should exist there someday.

Switching the wait for a silence did the trick…


 if("${CALLERID(num)}" = "${EXT}")


 if("${CALLERID(num)}" = "${EXT}")


oops double posted.
