You'll need to configure your dialplan to do this.  What you are
asking is easy to do, but dialplan themselves can be very complex.  I
really suggest you read as much as possible in the asterisk section of


You will also want to read the sample configuration file of extensions.conf

Now, to answer your question, you'll need to configure an extension.
One possible way to do this - in extensions.conf:

exten => XXXXXXXXXX,1,VoicemailMain()
   (where XXXXXXXXXX is your DID number)
