[Freeswitch-users] voicemail to email question

Hi All,

I have just in the last 2 days succeeded in getting FS to use SENDMAIL and send me my voicemails.  However, I do mean ME and almost nobody else.  It appears that my Microsoft Office 365 mailbox has NO restrictions on emails it will accept.  Almost any spoofing is FINE.

I think my underlying problem is the network and sendmail setup on my server. (FYI: I am windows guy so this is pretty arcane stuff to me).  The email headers of the message I have received look BAD since the system name is "bizfocused.local" and the IP address reported is  Here is an excerpt:
Received: from BY2PR01MB251.prod.exchangelabs.com ( by
Received: from bizfocused.local ( by
Received: (from root at localhost)
        by bizfocused.local (8.13.8/8.13.8/Submit) id s3Q0JHkO012279;
From: root <root at bizfocused.local>
To: Undisclosed recipients:;
Return-Path: root at bizfocused.local
Received-SPF: None (: bizfocused.local does not designate permitted sender hosts)

So it would seem I have 4 options:

1.   Properly configure eth0 and sendmail and add an SPF record to match.
While this is the "proper" option, it will likely take several hours of googling and trials.
It may in fact be that this is very simple and I am just not aware - I hope someone jumps in on this.

2.   Maybe configure SENDMAIL to use my actual mail server?

3.   Create a shell script to translate the voicemail to wav and submit a curl job to my server for emailing.
Creating the WAV file is the only unknown for me here.  I have another script already curl'ing to my server which emails it out clean as a whistle.  Anyone help with the tmp file to WAV file conversion?

4.   Configure some other mail client and Freeswitch for this task.  (BOO HISS)

So feel free to jump in with ideas.  And as always THANK YOU.
