I want the callers process to create the voicemail box number based on the last 4 digits of their phone number. Since I don’t know before hand what those digits are I can not set it up nor do I want to manually manage voicemail boxes because thats silly.
I think I’ll just make a script that updates voicemail.conf for me when the caller calls in. It would be cool if you could do like: VoicemailMain(BOX,f) to force creation if it doesn’t exist. I assume asterisk already has processes to update voicemail.conf since you can change your password over the phone.
Incidentally: It would be awesome if there was a way to turn off CallerID when playing the envelope to prevent the receiver from hearing the phone number of the caller. Im surprised there is no obvious way to do this.
