Well, he did say "I have a shell script that sends my voicemail files as I need them to be sent" so I'm assuming this means that the script actually does what it's required to do.

He then said "I cannot get that emailwav.sh file to be called" so the problem seems to be FreeSwitch not calling the script, rather than the script not doing its job.

It would be good to know how Sean knows that the script is not being called, though, because the only problem report was "It still tries to send with sendmail", and this makes it unclear whether FreeSwitch (directly) or the script is calling sendmail.


There's a good theatrical performance about puns on in the West End.  It's a play on words.
