Thank you for updating me. I'm few version behind and need a speedy solution :-)

I found an example: 

; See if line 2 is available. If not, try line 1.
exten => s,1,ChanIsAvail(Zap/2&Zap/1)

${AVAILCHAN} might now contain the value

; We need to strip off the session ID and Dial '12345678' at Zap/2
exten => s,2,Dial(${CUT(AVAILCHAN||1)}/12345678)
exten => s,3,Hangup

I don't get the part "strip off the session ID and Dial '12345678'" where is the 12345678 coming from?

In my case I think it would be:

exten => 1,1,ChanIsAvail(${FD_L1&${FD_L2})
exten => 1,2,Dial(${CUT(AVAILCHAN||1)})
exten => 1,3,Voicemail(4)
exten => 1,4,Hangup()
