[Freeswitch-users] Voicemail Question (using multiple servers)

Thank you Bill for the input, but changing how I access the data
source does not solve my problem.
I was hoping to avoid the management of IP Addresses for every
voicemail box on the system.

Is there a way for me to set a default greeting to all voicemail boxes
globally, without having to go to a repository (regardless of means of
access) for each mailbox?

Hey VM,

Couldn't you just have your core use ODBC instead of SQLite?
