|Description:||It would be nice to be able to track the status of a voicemail box with using a custom hint type - as alike with meetme hints|
So you could create a hint like
exten => 999,hint,Voicemail:999@default
and be able to watch the status of the voicemail box
no unread messages=IDLE
new message arriving currently=RINGING
Why should someone need this...
Simple to be able to watch more than one mailbox on a desk phone - or to be able to configure a blf button for voicemail - with voicemail indication directly on the button.

Features requests are no longer submitted to or accepted through the issue tracker. Features requests are openly discussed on the mailing lists  and Asterisk IRC channels and made note of by Bug Marshals.
I do agree this would be a neat feature to have, unfortunately we can't have feature requests on the bug tracker without submitted code.

Actually, I think you could already fake this with Custom hints.
Define a Custom hint, then change the status when a voicemail is left using something like 'externnotify=' in voicemail.conf to trigger a script that would update the hint from the AMI.
There may be cleaner ways of going about it, but it doesn't seem impossible to do right now.
