Excuse my formatting here, this is my first contribution to the list. I

You need a password to protect your mailbox from people entering '*'
during your message. The extension I gave you bypasses the password
when you call from your own phone.

Yes but if someone accesses it from another phone it damn well better
ask for a password before serving up my messages.
