Full Version: BLF/MWI key for shared voicemail box
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
We have an Asterisk 11.1.2/FreePBX 2.11.0.0beta2.8 system running a combination of T28 and T38 handsets.

We have all the key functions, handset BLF's, Park BLF's, attended transfer via DSS, Call Flow Control with BLF status, etc working.

What I am trying to achieve is getting a DSS key to monitor a shared mailbox on a virtual extension to light up as MWI when there are messages to checked.

When pressed the key logs in to the appropriate mailbox but I have not been able to get a BLF to light up on a new messages, my present DSS key configuration is as follows:

Type=BLF
Value=*98299
Line=Line1
Ext=299

I have also tried:
Type=Voicemail
Value=*98299
Which logins in to the appropriate mailbox when pressed but does not give BLF

and:
Type=Voicemail
Value=299
Does not log in to mail, only plays the greeting and takes a message.

Is there a setting I am overlooking in the handsets or in asterisk to enable MWI monitoring?

Thanks,
Jordan.
