Removal of voicemail system message


I am have asterisk at home version 2.5 and configuring it directly through .config files. Which works fine for me.

However, I would like to remove the voicemail system message that plays after the users personal voicemail greeting has been played back to the caller that says ‘when done hang up or press the pound key’. ie instead of playing back the called party’s voice mail greeting followed by the ‘when done …’ system message, I would like the system just to provide the beep prompt after the called party’s voice mail greeting.

If you could point me in the direction of the message that I need to edit out I would be obliged.

Thanks in anticipation.


hi marrow,


s: The letter s, if present, causes the instructions (“Please leave your message after the tone. When done, hang up, or press the pound key.”) to be skipped.

you need to set this in you extensions.conf when where you tell the call to go to voicemail

exten => 123,n,Voicemail(123|s)

The above will just give a beep and allow you to leave a message at mailbox 123.

That did the job! Thanks for your help.

I was searching for this… thx
