i have a few users on my phone system who use x-lite (including myself) and i’m having a hard time finding a way to let these users know when they have a message waiting.
on my sip phones, the ‘voicemail’ option in sip.conf gives a stuttered dial tone when there is a new message waiting for that user. this feature doesn’t seem to work with x-lite. i don’t even think x-lite gives a ‘real’ dialtone since it plays a dialtone even when the softphone isn’t registered. does anyone know a way to get the stuttered dial tone to work? is there any other way to indicate that an x-lite user has a message?
also, i would like to use sendmail to email voicemessages to users. i know how to specify a users email address in asterisk, but i have no idea how to use sendmail and am having a hard time finding places to learn how to configure it. i feel like sending messages to my isp’s smtp server shouldn’t be that tough, but i can’t figure it out. any tips or good resources?
