Make sure your voicemail.conf mailbox number corresponds to the correct extension in the corresponding context in extensions.conf.  If it doesn't, where is it going to send the call?  (rhetorical question).

Also, make sure you call directory app with (default) as the option. (ie, exten => 4000,1,Directory(default)



exten => 1001,1,Dial(Zap/1/18005551212)

and so on..


1001,1234,Bob Dobbs,,,

and so on..

I was unable to reproduce your problem with current cvs.

If you are still experiencing this problem after checking all of your config, please post your extensions.conf, and your voicemail.conf to verify settings are correct.  Otherwise, This bug will be closed.

This is a configuration issue.  I've clarified the documentation to show that the context argument passed to directory must match *both* the context in which the extensions exist (or something that includes it) *and* the section of voicemail.conf.  I also had it print a warning when the context/extension it was looking for didn't exist.
