Hi Daniel & others,

thank you Daniel, I solved my problem now (already 1-2 weeks ago). I'd
like to share it with this list to help other people with a related problem:

This advice was right. I tried it already before writing to this list,
but I had problems with that.

At first, I created the file extension_custom.conf as attached. Very
related to the file in my first mail.
Then, I created in FreePBX a dummy extension "1111". After that, I
entered in the "advanced" section in the "Dial:" field the following
string: "local/s at send-email". By that way, the custom code will be executed.

Let's say my actual number is 1234 (it's not the real one, but I use an
example for privacy reasons).
I activated, of course, the "Find me/Follow me" section of the extension
1234 in FreePBX (Enabled = yes). Then, I entered in the Follow-Me List
1111 _AND_ 1234.
Additionally, I set as destination in case of no answer a Time
Condition. (All calls are forwarded, the destination of is depend to the
time condition - using the calender setting in that module itself is not
possible in this case.)

Also the 1111 dummy extension has a time condition as destination, like
the 1234 one – I think, in one case it's not necessary (I thought so at
first in one of this cases), but it works.

I used for the inbound route as destination the 1234 extension.
If you have a related problem, maybe it's not enough information to
solve it – if you need, you can send me a mail (or better answer to the
