Hi all,

We have been using asterisk 1.8 for some while now, together with asterisk 1.6.

We have the following problem. In asterisk 1.8 when you leave a voicemail, the person at that extension is notified by email that he has a voicemail. The voicemail is attached to that email along with other details like: duration of vm, caller name, caller number, date. The duration is always reported lover than 4 seconds despite the fact that the voicemail left has 20 seconds or more, I’ve looked on /var/spool/asterisk/voicemail/default/EXTEN/INBOX and there in the *.txt file of that voicemail the duration is still reported wrong.

On asterisk 1.6 we didn’t had this problem and I even ported the configuration file (voicemail.conf) from there to asterisk 1.8 but it still doesn’t work.

Do you have any ideas please ?

Thanks for the help,
Bogdan Sarandan

  • After all is this a bug ? Anyone who is using asterisk 1.8 has the same problems ?
