Hi list,

in asterisk 1.4 and maybe earlier it was possible to use voicemail
system with mailboxes starting with some special characters like *. The
line in voicemail.conf was like this:
        *123 => , AB,,,tz=cet|attach=no|

Calling exten => s,n,Voicemail(*123,su) is working in asterisk 1.4.

In Asterisk 1.8 the above scenario is not working any more. The
Voicemail application reports an error message:
WARNING: app_voicemail.c: leave_voicemail: No entry in voicemail config
file for '*123'

Is this a known bug, fixed in newer versions (I currently use 1.8.11) or
should I file a bug report?
