Not having followed the thread from the beginning I must admit, not sure 
if the 's' flag has been suggested to you?  What I have in my dial plan 

exten => 100,n,VoicemailMain(s${CALLERID(num)})

So callers can dial 100 from their phones and get immediately into their 
mailboxes without any sort of authentication.

This does have security concerns as anyone can walk up to anybody else's 
phone and start dialling to listen to someone else's messages.  In my 
installation this is not a problem, but could be a problem elsewhere.

Apologies if the thread was about something entirely different and this 
was not the problem.
