Voicemail Notifications

Is there a way to programmatically determine if there are unread voicemails in a given mailbox?

I have a situation where I need to keep close eyes on a particular voicemail box. The built in voicemail notification is ok but I’d like to take that one step further by repeatedly sending out a notification either pager or email (say every 10 minutes) if there are remaining unread messages in the mailbox. I know that I could just scan the voicemail directory for files, but I’m just wondering if there’s an asterisk/api/etc call that might be more appropriate.


Look for vmcount() in


and elsewhere

You could also parse the output of:

asterisk -x "voicemail show users for default"
