You are the one who would define what to dial or how to enter your 
voicemail account.

In your /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf file you could add a line such as 
the following in the correct place. The correct place means in a context 
[somename] that matches a location your extension 101 would see.

exten => 1234,1,VoiceMailMain()

With that line in the correct place, you could now dial 1234 to enter 

If you have installed Asterisk from a package like TrixBox, then mention 
that in your message. The simple answer would be *98 is the default.
