Description:When Executing VoiceMailMain , after option 0 (Mailbox OPtions)
Then option 4  which should take you to change the password, instead takes you to "Record your temporary Message".  

There is no way to change the Mailbox Password.


I have no clue how to determine my version.  I did a cvs checkout asterisk, libpri, zaptel on 7/15/05. When I do asterisk -V, all i get is "Asterisk CVS-HEAD", but as far as what verions , I can only assume is 071505 as that is the date I downloaded it.

I have another box with version Asterisk 1.0.7-BRIstuffed-0.2.0-RC7k , where the applications VoiceMail2 and VoiceMailMain2 exist and work perfectly.  The CVS HEAD version does not support VoiceMail2 or VoiceMailMain2.

Heh, not sure this is MAJOR.  <strike>But I just looked at app_voicemail.c and looks like password is now option 5.  I'm going to trace back and see when this was changed.</strike>

Looking at http://www.voip-info.org/tiki-pagehistory.php?page=Asterisk+cmd+VoiceMailMain&diff2=18 seems it was changed back in Dec. 2004.  A new feature I guess.

Here is the change, back in November (http://lists.digium.com/pipermail/asterisk-cvs/2004-November/004130.html).  Personally they should have added it as option 5, rather then breaking compatibility from 1.0.  Meh.

Ok, added patch for you to use.  Changes password back to option 4, and temporary message to 5.  This changes things back to how 1.0 works.

File Disclamed.

I think you are mistaken; it's possible that your system has old sound files installed. On my system, the voice prompt exactly matches the options in app_voicemail.
