Description:Hi there,

first of all, sorry for my bad english.

I needed a function that allows me to change the default message.
I dont want to have the extension number within the default message, because I am using some catchall mailboxes.

For example: extension 210 has a voicemailbox, external number 12345 was dialed.

The message comes up with: "...at extension 210 is not available..."
So I have added a field to Voicemail():

# exten => s-BUSY,1,Voicemail(b${ARG1})
# exten => s-BUSY,1,Voicemail(b${ARG1},${DNID})

It will be executed as Voicemail("b210|12345")

My patch will have a look at the "|". If the command comes up without a "|", it falls back to its usual buisness and uses the extension number 210 for its default message. Otherwise it uses 12345 for the default message and the voices keep telling the caller: "blabla 12345 is not available..."

I find this very usefull, because many users dont want to change the default message, but dont want to have the extension number, too, in the message. It's much better that the mailbox tell the caller the DNID or a static number you enter in the command.
