We already have a dialer script (sent to this list a while ago) so it’s
good to see that this extension support that simpler option as well (I
don’t use ThunderBird, as you can see. Some others in the office do use
it).

One followup question: I originate a call from a SIP phone to some
remote number. The problem is that the number will not show up properly
in the list of outgoing calls for the phone. Any idea how to fix this
(for whatever SIP phone)?
