Description:Something which could come in handy in some situations would be an app to check if a voicemail-user has any new messages.  The app could return the amount of new messages in a specific VMB in a variable, given to it as an argument.

Something like:


would set ${foo} to the amount of new messages in mailbox "1234", in the optional voicemail-context.

I fail to see how exactly this could be useful.  They can just call voicemail and do that.  Can you provide a real world example of how this could be used?

Hey bkw,

I came to think of it during the discussion in ticket "0000191", about the dialtone-patch and that it could be used to generate a stutter-dialtone in case a certain VMB has new mail, in combination with "PlayDialtone".

I'm pretty sure it would have more uses to be able to branch differently in the extension-logic, based on (the number of) new voicemails in a VMB.  That the user can call voicemail to check is not the point.  The point is that the extension-logic has a way of checking as well.

I wrote this application a while back, for the original Voicemail app.  Shouldn't be too difficult to modify it for use with Voicemail2.  I'll see what I can work up in the next day or so.  BTW, if you want to find it in the list archives, it's called HasNewVoicemail.
