[Asterisk-Users] context of a transfer

I allow our internal extensions to transfer calls, so I have the
appropriate "t/T" in the Dial() command.
When I do the transfer, though, I don't know what context the user
entry is interpreted in... The one which calls the macro which does
This is an issue because my internal phones are in the 201-208 range.
In my initial context, though, I only match on the "2" and then GoTo()
a context where the 01-08 is matched (for voicemail I manually add the
"2" back on). However, when transferring, I cannot use the "2" and can
only use the 2-digit extension number.
I do this because I wanted 301-308 to be used to dial directly into the
user's voicemail. I can probably rearrange my dialplan to put _20X all
in one context rather than 2 -> _0X in separate contexts, but then I
think I will lose the ability I was after: to transfer a call directly
into another extension's VM without ringing their phone...
