Default Files For Voicemail Box Creation Like /etc/skel

Is there a way to specify default files to use for new mailbox creations? For example, when a mailbox’s directory structure is created, there is no greeting, unavailable, or busy messages, so the incoming calls get the message: “The person at extension XXXXXX is not available”. I’d like to be able to specify default files to be used and copied into the voicemail structure, something similar to /etc/skel for user accounts. Does anybody know if such a feature exists and how to use it?

Thanks

  • When you set up a new mailbox, the program copies default files. Just overlay those files with what you want. Look in apps/app_voicemail.c for guidance.
