Description:I love the new features in VoiceMailMain2!  But...

VoiceMailMain2 no longer honors "6,7" quick deletes on messages.  A preceeding "1" is required to stop the message, then 6-7 can be pressed to delete.  This is kind of annoying for those of us that get dozens of messages a day, mostly with the same person yapping about the same problem or bill or arrest warrant or whatever.  I just want to delete these messages quickly...

Also: it would be very nice to have a "skip" feature while listening to envelope information.  Typically, '1' is used in many systems as the "skip to message" key, but anything that makes sense will do.

If there are userland methods to change these things, I apologize in advance for the bug report, but the modifications did not seem obvious to me.

Email snippet from Stephen Davies below:

So you now have to remember to hit a 1 before your command...  1-7-6 to
stop playback, delete and advance to the next message.

But worse - if you are going fast - and hit that 1 BEFORE
ast_control_streamfile starts, it is interpretted (I think) as the main
menu option to go to new/old folder (which takes you back to the 1st
message).  Same if you are slow and hit it after playback is finished.  
So you end up deleting/undeleting the first message, not the current one,
losing your place, etc.

How about if ast_control_streamfile would rather interpret *, 0 and # as
it does now, but take any other key as a stop-playback and also pass the
key back for interpretation.  * and # are still overloaded, but at least
the main commands are available immediately as they were before.

Incidentally, also noticed that on the last message, your end-of-message
options are read out in a funny order (4, 3, 5, ...).

Also, press * at the end of a message and the help repeats itself - it
plays the main menu help (including 3 and others), then the message help
which redescribes 3 and others.

So - I'm game to make a patch that adjusts the behaviour per my suggestion quoted above.
