review
Sometimes it is nice to let a caller review their message before committing it to a mailbox. This setting takes a yes or no value. If set to yes, then the caller will be asked to review the message, or save it as is after they have pressed '#'. If set to no, the message will be saved and the voice maill system will disconnect the caller. The default value for review is no. This setting is only available in versions of Asterisk with advanced voicemail feature support.

are you wanting to turn this on for everyone? or just 1 user?

reading the voip info page i tried to implement callback but there is no context fromvm which is the default in voicemail.conf how would i create a context to match in MTE, should be some thing from-inside-{tenant name} but im not sure what string this {} should be
any thoughts

thats not a per mailbox setting, its global only. So unless you want a REALLY PISSED off customer because the entire pbx's outbound calls are going out a single tenant and running up his/her bill... i wouldnt touch that =)

my question is, would it be possible to do it should use the tenant id from the default field [dfault-tenant] in the voicemail.conf page

Moshe

By eeman

so, your looking at a completely manual thing then for every extensoin..

in each extra option box

review=yes
dialout=from-inside-7186401550
callback=from-inside-7186401550

voicemail.conf is not dialplan, you cannot use dialplan variables in it. you have to static code every single extension.

now if this were single tenant... you could set it up globally as

dialout=from-inside
callback=from-inside

this is why i don't screw with it on MTE. IF they want the feature that bad Im going to sell them STE and make some profit. This is such an obscure feature that its so not worth the effort to mess with. Callerid has to be perfect AND accurate, dialout has the same issues as DISA for abuse, the context you send it to has to have a pattern to deal with the callback pattern.

Guys, any luck so far with the callback feature.
I'm trying to implement this. My system is able to find the correct caller-id but it it going to an invalid extension.

Channel 'SIP/2023-Intelecis-00006390' sent into invalid extension '2035' in context 'fromvm', but no invalid handler

Please throw some light.
