Description:This would ease integrating Asterisk/Comedian with legacy PBX systems, with Comedian acting as the primary voicemail for both systems. Many legacy PBX systems accept a feature code + extension sequence to turn on/off Message Waiting Indicators.
Should include options to either use a DIAL command to dial the MWI on/off code, or to run a script (which will allow for SMDI/VoiceBridge/PBX-Link type of integrations).


Perhaps a cleaner solution would be to add new functionality like this to extensions.conf:

MessageIndicatorOn => *100
MessageIndicatorOff => *101
exten => 2XXX,1,Dial(Zap/g1/${MWI|MAILBOX})

I think the best solution would be two context's, or you would need someway to define a variable that would be passed into this context when it was called, depeding on ON or OFF.

Two contexts, one for one and one for off, would be what i would think.

I guess in here we could run a DeadAGI, Do a DIAL to update MWI for a old style PBX, send a sms or numeric page, etc.  Sounds like a great idea to me.

You can already run a script (see extenrnotify app) and we even wrote that for this purpose :)
