Description:The new timezone features are not adequately documented for the uninitiated.  Please find a more complete description of features in the "additional information" section, which may more appropriately give data to the new user.  


; Users may be located in different timezones, or may have different
;  message announcements for their introductory message when they enter
;  the voicemail system.  Set the message and the timezone each user
;  hears here.  Set the user into one of these zones with the tz= attribute
;  in the options field of the mailbox.  Of course, language substitution
;  still applies here so you may have several directory trees that have
;  alternate language choices.
;  Look in /usr/share/zoneinfo/ for names of timezones.
;  Look at the manual page for strftime for a quick tutorial on how the
;   variable substitution is done on the values below.
; Supported values:
;  'filename'        = filename of a soundfile
;  '${VAR}'          = variable substitution
;  'A' or 'a'        = Day of week (Saturday, Sunday, ...)
;  'B' or 'b' or 'h' = Month name (January, February, ...)
;  'd' or 'e'        = numeric day of month (first, second, ..., thirty-first)
;  'Y'               = Year
;  'I' or 'l'        = hour, 12 hour clock
;  'H' or 'k'        = hour, 24 hour clock (single digit hours preceeded by "oh")
;  'M'               = minute
;  'P' or 'p'        = AM or PM
;  'Q'               = "today", "yesterday" or ABdY (*note: not standard strftime value)
;  'q'               = "today", "yesterday", weekday, or ABdY (*note: not standard strftime value)
;  'R'               = 24 hour time, including minute

Explicit filenames should be surrounded with single ticks (').  The filename should be relative to /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/.  All other
values should NOT be surrounded by single ticks (').

The following formats are specified incorrectly:
k - 24-hour hour, single digit hours are NOT preceded by 'oh'
q - Same as Q, except that for same day, 'today' is not spoken
