My guess is that your email provider is forwarding the message since
Asterisk should send the same content to both places.

Subject: [asterisk-users] Getting unwanted pager email from Asterisk

Hi All

I am not sure why but I am getting a pager email as well as a voicemail
email when a voicemail is left. I am guessing its a setting somewhere but I
can’t find it

The system is Ubuntu with Asterisk 1.8.12 from source. I am using Freepbx
for the configs but freepbx doesn’t do much to voicemail

The mail system is Postfix

My test scenario








emaildateformat=%A, %B %d, %Y at %r

pagerdateformat=%A, %B %d, %Y at %r

sendvoicemail=yes ; Allow the user to compose and send a voicemail while


121 => 1234,Duncan

I get the voicemail with attachment

Subject [PBX]: New message 1 in mailbox 121

Dear Duncan testing:

Just wanted to let you know you were just left a 0:08 long
message (number 1)
in mailbox 121 from 21722545, on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 08:45:02 PM so
you might
want to check it when you get a chance. Thanks!

  • Check voicemail.conf and you will probably find both an Email and pager
    address in there. Just get rid of the pager address.

  • Thanks but my voicemail conf line looks like this

    There is no pager email address so I am not sure why its sending a pager email

  • Thanks but they are two different messages i.e. one is the standard voicemail one, the other the pager email as below
