[Freeswitch-users] Remote fetching of voicemail

I did check (and modify as my voicemail extension name is not vmain) the
voicemail.conf.xml, and vmain-key is *.

What I mean by remote fetching of voicemail, is that someone may dial in,
either from inside (via FXS or even SIP) or outside (via FXO), then when
reaching the voice mail to leave a message, he could dial some specific
digit (or digits) to reach the voicemail login and fetch his voice mails.

I can do this using bind_meta_app (it is already working), but then I need
to terminate the extension when invoking the meta_app, otherwise freeswitch
may sometimes hang if the meta app is called after the "leave a message"
voicemail tone.
