Voicemail and directory


I was playing around with the asterisk voicemail application. (version 1.4.21)

In voicemail.conf, I have set usedirectory=yes, which permits to find
entries for forward/compose using the directory.

However, it uses the last name of the voicemail user for search purpose. Is
there a voicemail.conf setting, so that the application permits to search from directory using the first name.

I was looking around, but couldn’t understand how to do it. Any help would
be appreciated.


When you use the directory command, it defaults to the last name. Use the “f” option to use the first name.
