My voicemail system is no longer in existence (it's no longer cost
effective to keep it around, especially with the power crisis) so I can't
remember if my modem did screening or not, but I think that capability
depends on the modem hardware.  If it supports the capability, I'd think
you can change the initialization AT string to enable it.

I'd think.

Has it been 2 years already?  There was just the talk outline:


That's it.  No complex outlines or explanations; just the outline.
Probably nothing that can help you, unfortunately.

The link to the Sorrento Script is broken.  I can send it to you if you'd
like, but it needs updating and customization.

Unfortunately, that's true.  I figured out the configuration by reading
the comments in the config file and by trial & error.

There's a vgetty mailing list.  They can probably help you better. To
subscribe, e-mail mgetty-subscribe@crynwr.com
