Voice Mail Questions


We are trying to add voice mail to our hotel rooms. Our current phone instruction cards say 'to reach voice mail dial ext 456". Replacing those instructions is not feasible at the moment. We have Feature Code *97 that takes them directly to their voice mail box. Question - What is an easy way to have exten 456 dial *97.

We are using AsteriskNow distro, version11.

I use Asterisk with an SPA3102 (latest F/W). I have my asterisk voicemail.conf setup as follows:

; Limit the minimum message length to 3 seconds minsecs = 3

This works perfectly, however, when the caller hangs up before the beep (or during it?) then I get 1 minute and 22 seconds of (3-5 sec of dialtone, then saying to dial the operator)). How do I avoid getting this? If a message is not left, I do not wish to receive any e-mail/attachments like this, are there any workarounds?
