Description:copy of email sent to asterisk-users list...
had this exact problem on 1.4.11 &  three seperate pbx installations

I specified the voicemail context to be [other] in voicemail.conf and added my Voicemail(103@other,u) in the extensions.conf and could not, for the life of me, retrieve voicemail...
moved the extensions to [default] in voicemail.conf... everything worked fine even w/o changing the extensions.conf file..  now that you mention it, I will submit a bug report.
thanks for the reminder!
exten => 103,n,Voicemail(103@other,u)
exten => 201,n,Voicemail(201@other,u)
exten => 202,n,Voicemail(202@other,u)

works only if x103 is in [default] not if it is in [other]

103 => 1234,x103 User,david.cantera@IBSOneCall.com,6093043234@atext.com

I cannot reproduce this.  Please upload the contents of a nonworking voicemail.conf, and I mean the whole file.

(after masking the passwords, of course..)

When I was new to Asterisk, I had a problem similar to this. When you say "retrieve" voicemail, I assume you mean via VoiceMailMain(), correct? I'm guessing that after typing in the mailbox and password, you are being denied access. There are two ways around this.

1) Call VoiceMailMain with the "other" context specified, i.e.

exten => foo,1,VoiceMailMain(@other)

2) If you would rather have a catchall VoiceMailMain where you don't have to specify a context, you can set searchcontexts=yes in the [general] section of voicemail.conf.

Per comment from putnopvut, and a brief discussion on IRC with other bug marshals, we decided to close this.

Please feel free to reopen if this is incorrect.
