Yes. I believe the default value is "0" when they hear their own outgoing
message. The value can be adjusted in
conf/autoload_configs/voicemail.conf.xml. Look for this line:

<param name="login-keys" value="0"/>

What I don't know is if you can set it to more than one keystroke, like
"##" or somesuch. In any case, have fun tinkering with that value. Be sure
to reload mod_voicemail after making changes to that file.

Yes. I personally just put a value into the database for the user(s) in
question. I use something like the following (keep in mind that you need to
define ${domain} or insert the proper value):

for I in `seq 1000 1019`; do
  sqlite3 /usr/local/freeswitch/db/voicemail_default.db "insert into
voicemail_prefs (username,domain,password) values

That sets the default password on all user VMs to "12345" for users 1000 -
1019. Use passwords and user ID's appropriate for your installation.
