It is quite unlikely that there were any changes between 10.0.1 and
10.1.0 that would affect DTMF detection or app_voicemail itself, but
it’s certainly possible. That’s why we have an issue reporting system,
and it’s also why we produce release candidates to get testing prior to
making official releases.

I assume you are referring to how app_voicemail (not ‘comedian mail’) is
listed the menuselect tool. Umm… no, those are completely unrelated.
How did you reach that assumption?

    Well, none the less, it’s broken now and it wasn’t before. I always
    try to run the release candidates but must have missed the one for
    10.1. I added a report to JIRA.

    It was not an assumption, it was a question. It’s the first time I
    remember app_voicemail not being checked by default and the first
    time I remember seeing it with <> brackets.

  • app_voicemail (on some systems) requires that res_adsi and res_smdi be
    built and loaded; if they are not enabled, then the ‘checkbox’ for
    app_voicemail changes to angle brackets.In menuselect, the presence of
    angle brackets instead of square brackets means that enabling the item
    in question is going to also automatically enable modules/features that
    it depends on that are themselves currently disabled (sorry for the long
    sentence… it’s just how menuselect works).
