I wondered about that but the docs are not very explicit on the subject
and I thought that the other poster was suggesting something that he
had used/tested.

So does the Dial command go directly to the registered device or does
it use the extension?  I was assuming that it was going to the
extension's voice mail if it wasn't there but that's in the extension
dialplan and I suspect that the extension is irrelevant and only the
SIP registration matters.  That would be a good thing since many
extensions also ring the user's cell phone and that would be annoying
if they were at home when someone came to the office door.

Perhaps my problem was that one of the users was removed from sip.conf
but their phone was still in the above plan.  For example, user2 leaves
the company, is removed from sip.conf but we forgot to remove him from
the door buzzer extension.  That might give me the behaviour that I was

I think I have enough information now to analyze this problem if it
happens again.  Thanks for the help.
