The following shows an example of the things you may need to change in your sccp.conf file.

Voicemail sccp.conf File Changes

You can add the ability to enable the Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) lamp on SCCP phones when there is a message in a mailbox. To do this you need to add the mailbox = xxxx option to each of the lines you wish to monitor in sccp.conf

For example:

[sally-line1]
type=line
label = 2901
context = default
mailbox = 2901

You can also set the voicemail button on the phone (newer Cisco phones have a picture of an envelope on this button) to be a speed dial button which calls the extension to check messages. To do this you need to add the vmnum = xxxx option to each of the lines you wish to monitor in sccp.conf

For example:

[sally-line1]
type=line
label = 2901
context = default
vmnum = 2999

After making changes to the MWI you will need to reload the sccp configuration in Asterisk and reboot/reset the phones before the MWI light status will begin being updated.

Reloading After Configuration Changes

If you make changes to the sccp.conf file and need to get Asterisk to re-load the configuration you can run the sccp reload command from the Asterisk CLI to re-read the file.
