Has anyone been able to make an html template for the voicemail emails. We would love to customize them beyond just plain text. We have dome some Google searches and have not been able to come up with much.

I believe that Switchvox has customized the voicemail email into html. Has anyone ever tried this? Thanks,
/Josh

  • Have you tried to insert the HTML code directly into the body?

  • Yes and you just get html code in the email rather than the html format.

  • app_voicemail does not send MIME-encapsulated emails, it sends raw email. Unless you could add a Content-Type header to the message (which app_voicemail doesn’t allow you to do), the email client that receives the HTML is going to treat it as plain text, which is what you saw.

  • You can change voicemail.conf to use a delivery option other than sendmail. Other than that, show us your body line from voicemail.conf

  • That is most likely the best way to accomplish it; it would need to receive the already-composed email on stdin, then parse it, modify it, and regenerate it before sending it to the real mailer. This could be done using standard email libraries in many scripting languages.
