Does anyone have a super simple cookbook describing the steps to
integrate Mail into an Asterisk Dial Plan.
I have googled but have a lot of choppy results. I am running RH and

Not sure if this is an asterisk issue at all. After setting the trivial
options in voicemail.conf, it’s really just SMTP and relaying from there.
I think this pretty much explains the whole thing:
; You can override the default program to send e-mail if you wish, too

Note: normally there’s no need to change that. Decent mailers such as
postfix tend to provide /usr/sbin/sendmail of their own. Anyway, just
use postfix (or sendmail, or exim, if that’s the default of your
It does not actually have to listen on port 25. It only needs to relay
all the mail to a separate mail server. In postfix that is normally done
by adding the following in main.cf:
relayhost = [mx-host]
where ‘mx-host’ is the host name or IP address of the exchange server.
However, if you want to have Asterisk use a mailbox on the exchange
server (and allow it to manipulate them), use the link given before for
imap integration. It is a more complex setup, though.
And specifically: are you able to send a mail from the command-line?
echo “Testing, 123” | mail -s “subject of test message” EMAIL
where EMAIL stands for one of the email addresses you used in
