Hi, I’m working through my first two Asterisk installations. Slowly.
On the home straight now, configured Voicemail OK. Excerpts as follows:
exten => 721,1,Verbose(1|Extension 721)
exten => 721,n,Dial(SIP/721,30)
exten => 721,n,Voicemail(721@locatrix)
exten => 721,n,PlayBack(vm-goodbye)
exten => 721,n,Hangup()
exten => 700,1,VoiceMailMain(@locatrix)
This works fine: when extension 701 is called and isn’t answers, a pre-recorded message is played, the v-mail is recorded and is mailed to the right user. I even get MWI lights on our Linksys phones (using “mailbox” in sip.conf).
Now dialing 700 asks for mailbox number and password, lets me review, delete messages as expected. Mailbox options gives me the ability to record personal “unavailable” “Busy” and “name” messages… which never get played to callers.
I can see the .wav files created in /var/spool/asterisk/voicemail/locatrix/721/[busy|greet|unavailable].wav. But callers only ever hear the standard greetings, not the ones I’ve recorded.
Is this something that could be fixed with a format= specification in he general context of the voicemail.conf file?
Or something else?
