If you always add the same number of digits and subtract the same number
of digits then there is no reason why the mailboxes can't have the E164
number associated with them. 

e.g. add #1 for Busy, #2 for No Reply and always strip 2 leading digits
at the receiving context after or at the routing decision. 

An alternative would be to use to different dial paths to the VM server.
Each path arrives in a different context. Each receiving context handles
a different forward scenario.
