Description:I added support in app_directory for namealias and searching by first and last name...

Example config for namealias
file: voicemail.conf
4110 => 3443,Rob Flynn,rflynn@blueridge.net
namealias => 4110,Bob Flynn

I Also add support for the b flag, so you can search by first and last name.


Version of Asterisk: asterisk-1.2.16



-Someone need to get a record so the intro says "....please enter the first three letters of you parties first or last name...."

-After you get the recording write the code to say the proper intro.

-Document voicemail.conf for the namealias option.

We can only add support for new features in trunk. We are in the process of getting an official prompt for the option recorded and added to trunk. If you'd like to add support for namealias on the current trunk release, then we might be able to include it.

I emailed kevin about getting a sound file for this. Since this is the last day i'm here i'm unassigning the issue.

You can already specify multiple names for a single mailbox, as shown below.  Asterisk has supported this since at least Asterisk 1.2 (if not earlier).

4110 => 1234,Rob Flynn,rflynn@blueridge.net
4110 => d,Bob Flynn
4110 => d,Robert Flynn

I look into trunk config sample and don't find sample of using this. I think it must be added to sample configuration files in 1.2 and latter. Also patch from 0007151 is look better.

Closing this, per comments from jsmith and sunder.  Patch in ASTERISK-6965 is to be used instead (if I understood correctly).
