I've been working on migrating our company's phone system over to Elastix and have most of it set now, except I can't get the New Voicemail light/indicator to work on either our xLite and eyeBeam softphones or on our Cisco SIP phones. Is there a setting I'm missing that I need to enable to turn on this feature? I found a forum post about the same problem, but the solution for them was to change the voicemail entry from extension@server_ip to extension@default. I tried this and it didn't work for us. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

I got this figured out tonight. The mailbox parameter in the database was different from what we were expecting. It's fixed now.

Re:New voicemail indicator/light not working

Hi jhunholz,

I also got this issue. I am configuring Cisco 7940 SIP phone.
I am able to leave and retrieve the message. However the message light is not on when there is a new message.

Could you please tell me how you fix it?

Thanks

The configure in sip.conf is:
mailbox=extension@device

change the context to extension@default instead of @device.

Yeah, make sure that the string in the SIP table matches what is in the User table. So if the user box is set to say, 2444@default, then it should be set to 2444@default in the SIP table.
