I would like to set Elastix so that it doesn't prompt for a voicemail password when the person is calling from their own phone. For example, when calling voicemail from extension 2111, it should just go to my messages and not ask for my password. Is there any way to change that? Thanks.

Re:Voicemail password problem

Yes, it can be done

You will need to write a context on /etc/asterisk/extensions_custom.conf

1. Locate the context [from-internal-custom]
add the following line
include => vm-nopassw

2. At the end of the file write the following context
[vm-nopassw]
exten => *96,1,Answer
exten => *96,n,VoiceMailMain(${CALLERID(num)},s)
exten => *96,n,Hangup

3. Save and exit the file

4. Execute from the shell
asterisk -rx "reload"

5. From any phone dial *96, and you should enter directly to check your messages

That's a bit complicated. When I set up my extension, I just left the password blank. A popup asks if you really want to do this, press the OK button, hit the orange bar and you're good to go. This is on Elastix 1.6 stable.

Re:Voicemail password problem

Thanks for the tips. I ended up doing something similar to what was suggested. Here's what I came up with:

[vm-nopassw]
exten => 100,1,Answer
exten => 100,n,Macro(user-callerid,)
exten => 100,n,Macro(get-vmcontext,${AMPUSER})
exten => 100,n,VoiceMailMain(s${AMPUSER}@${VMCONTEXT})
exten => 100,n,Hangup

The reason we had to change it is because users in our system can have multiple devices assigned to them (Desk phone + a Softphone + occasionally another Desk phone at home). Posting this back here in case anyone else has a problem with it.
