Description:The patch adds support for a channel variable called VM_CATEGORY. This variable can be set to the name of a sound file before sending a caller into voicemail to leave a message, and if so, the name of the file is remembered as the message's "category".

When the message is played back, the "category" sound file is played prior to the message envelope. We use this for distinguishing caller types (determined via IVR menu) that all ended up in the same mailbox.


Disclaimer is on file.

Perhaps would it be better to have a more flexible folder system, where folder names could be redefined by the mailbox owner, and new messages could be stored into any folder with something like "VoiceMail(b1001@default/3)" which would store the message into folder "3".  This would take a significant restructuring of app_voicemail (which I think is due anyway).

Actually I kinda like this concept.  I merged it in CVS with minor modifications to hopefully work with the ODBC stuff.
