Description:If voicemail users are placed in an external file, and referenced by an #include statement, password changes do not happen. When the user updates their password, the change appears to be accepted, but the file is not changed, so the password remains the same.


Ideally, the method of updating the password in the voicmail*.conf file should take into account any files loaded by app-voicemail.so (specifically, those referenced by an #include).
If this functionality is not supported, perhaps the sample file should be updated to say so, and/or an error should be raised on the console that the password did not get changed.

At the very top of voicemail.conf

; NOTE: Asterisk has to edit this file to change a user's password.  This does
; not currently work with the "#include <file>" directive for Asterisk
; configuration files.  Do not use it with this configuration file.
