[SOLVED} Peer without mailbox

Asterisk 11.12.0

I am getting the following error message:

NOTICE[1149]: chan_sip.c:27839 handle_request_subscribe: Received SIP subscribe for peer without mailbox: HT7021

sip.conf contains the following lines:


voicemail.conf contains the following line

203 => 1234,Bill Heather,heather@xxx.ca

extensions.conf associates extension 203 to SIP/HT7021

There are two other extensions defined for the system, and they work perfectly. As far as I can tell, the 203 and HT7021 entries in the variuos files are the same as the other two extensions (no typos etc.). When I relaod sip.conf, voicemail.conf. extensions.conf they all reload without error.

So what am I missing?

Thanks for your time.


There are no error messages in that log.

extensions.conf is not used to reverse translate the device name. It would be difficult to do so, and might well be an example of the Turing halting problem.

I still need to fix this. Asterisk posts this message twice every 30 seconds or so, and it is filling up the logs.

I just needed to add the line


To each of the device definitions in sip.conf

The best way of suppressing this warning is to disable the message waiting feature in the phone.
