Unfortunately, I haven't figured out the transfer issue either.
Luckily, this client really doesn't need voicemail transfer
capability.  They opted to forego multi-site voicemail transfer in
order to get stable and reliable voicemail.

I've toyed with the idea of making some code contributions to Asterisk
to implement a shared-directory / multi-server-voicemail-transfer
feature.  I think this would require some radical modifications to the
existing structure.  Also, my coding skills are quite rusty, and I
don't have a lot of time to devote to this.  Even if I began coding in
earnest right now, I wouldn't be able to get anything in until the 1.8
release at the earliest.  Maybe I should have this client start a
bounty, or just go to the experts and pay Digium directly to implement
this.  I wonder what a reasonable amount would be?
