Recording and MWI (Newbie question)

I am a newbie and first time “poster” so bear with me. I have 2 questions.

  1. recording: I have an Meridian Option 11 hooked to my Asterisk box via a PRI with QSIG signalling. I have set up an access code of “8” in the option 11 to access the PRi to the Asterisk Box. Is there a way to set up the record application so that a user could dial “8” and then the number he/she wanted to dial and the application record based on the caller id of the user? That is to say if I wanted ext 4711 to be recorded each time it dialed through the asterisk box no matter what number was dialed, how would I set that up?

  2. MWI: Has anyone had any experience, or is it possible to send a Message Waiting Indication to an Option 11 over the “D” channel on the PRI?

Thanks for any input you can provide!
