Voicemail Broadcast/Groups

Hi all,

I have been trying to find someone that has successfully added a feature in Asterisk voicemail that would allow for VM Groups. I think that a user should be able to create a text file in their mailbox directory that holds the list, and then the user can send a voicemail to everyone on that list from their voicemail.

I know that this sounds like a big undertaking, because it would involve a TUI, as well as a mechanism to recursively send a voicemail, but I think that it is possible. I have emailed a few people offline that have done this, and they have in turn emailed me the code that they used to do this, but I don’t exactly have the skills nessecary to roll this into the distribution. I have tried the “patch” command, but because they wrote this funtionality on an older version of asterisk (1.2.7) it doesn’t work. Is there anything else I can do, or should I just be patient and hope that someone else with a larger skill set runs into the same problem?
