Description:Hi guys

Here are the repro steps:

1) create and drop a text file that creates a call to an external iax2 number that connects to a meetme conference on your box in the /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing
2) the call connects as expected and then connects you to your meetme - great
3) now drop the same text file in again so the system will try again even though you are already on the call - but your extensions.ael says to go voicemail if not available - so it does - it then starts to record the conference as a message in your voicemail until it times out (nasty but nothing you can do about this as expected) however .... it doesn't detect the of the voicemail and so the call goes on forever and ever.

It seems it isn't hearing the hangup from the voicemail app and so keeps the meetme call open forever.

You should provide the dialplan and configuration files along with console output when this happens so it is clear how to reproduce.

Right now it is not clear.

i'm curious as to whether voicemail actually times out, since afaik it doesn't unless you hangup the channel or send some dtmf digits, so it should record forever until manually hang up.
