Description:I have several extensions (with SIP phones) who points to the same voicemailbox (101). I have just one message (old) in my voicemailbox (101). I forward it to the same mailbox (101) and then delete it from the voice menu.
One of the phones (Cisco 7960) lights up the message indicator light. The message is in the correct directory: var/lib/asterisk/sounds/voicemail/default/101/INBOX, including the corresponded text file.
Trying to access the voicemail system for the 101 mailbox, the system told me that I have no messages.

If I receive a new voice message ,then when I access the voicemail it told me that I have two messages in my mailbox.

The reason is (I think) that when I delete de first message, the name of the second is not changed to msg0000 and then the system does not know that I still have a valid mesage inside.


The content of the file msg0001.txt is:
; Message Information file
callerid="Dan Home"<101>
origdate=Wed Jul 30 02:30:31 PM EEST 2003

Please observe that the name is not msg0000, but msg0001, even it is the single message in INBOX.

Did you try this with voicemail2?

This is the line used in extensions.conf file.

Then the mail is read from the mailbox with VoceMailMain.

I mean you need to check with VoiceMailMain2

It is the same with VoiceMailMain2 too...

Did anything change with this bug recently?  I seem to recall a shift in the numbering scheme that was used for voicemail incremental counters...

This seems fixed in CVS.  I forward a message back to myself shows up as a new message in my inbox.
