Any one know how to change the from address on notifications from the system.

When you get a notification on your cell that there is a message in your vm. It comes from asterisk@com.com. This poses a problem when you have mailboxes on multiple systems. You don't know which system notified you. Anyone know how to change that?

Check your settings here:
https://your-asterisk-box.com/?menu=network

Make sure your "Host" is set to the domain name you want. You may need to restart the mail server after changing, although I am not sure.

------------

You can also force this value for each extension.
by adding serveremail=somename@somehost.com in each extensions VM Options box.

Nope neither of those options worked. What you are referring to is the reply message from the email that is sent to your email address.( that I have changed ) What I am asking the the text message that is sent to your cell phone telling you that you have a message.

It always comes from asterisk.com.com

EDIT

I should have typed asterisk@com.com<br><br>Post edited by: Telco, at: 2008/01/25 03:37

OK some what resolved>>>>>

In the older version of elastix (0.9.1) under /etc/ there is a mail folder for sendmail however in the latest version 0.9.2 there sendmail is not activated or not installed because there is no mail folder there.

In 0.9.1 I was able to change the from addy from asterisk@com.com by editing the sendmail.cf file and enable the "my official domain" option. Then I would get an txt message from asterisk@(whatever domain I put in).

However in 0.9.2 that is not an option so I have not figured it out in 0.9.2 yet. I still get txt messages from asterisk@com.com.

Telco,

The Email address you refer to is found at

/etc/asterisk/vm_general.inc

The lines you are after are

serveremail=vm@elastix.yourdomain.com
fromstring=Voicemail System ; Real name of email sender

The text of the message can be found at

/etc/asterisk/vm_email.inc

Just be careful with using "nano" editor with this file as it has long lines in it. VI is a better option or make a backup file, in case it blows up.

Hope it helps

Regards

Bob<br><br>Post edited by: Bob, at: 2008/01/26 15:35

If you refer to de system mails, no voicemail, you must to change last lines in
/etc/postfix/main.cf

mydomain = yourdomain.com
myhostname = pbx.yourdomain.com

Elastix don't user sendmail.

Thanks for the responses.

Bob, that just changes the email reply-to addy. NOT the pager reply-to addy.

Usuarioforum, Thanks I will try that.
