    Hello Experts,

    Recently upgraded my a@h server to v2.7. On my old system, v1.3, I had
    recorded some custom prompts, so that whenever a call was answered by
    voicemail, the caller heard my voice saying "please leave a message
    after the tone, when done, press the hash key". This prompt replaced
    the vm-intro.gsm audio file which refers to the "pound" key.

    Anyway, my problem with the new install is - the voicemail prompt
    appears to be vm-into.ulaw, not .gsm. How do I record &/or convert my
    custom prompt to be in the .ulaw format?

    Cheers.

    like to hear the answer too.

    I'm looking for some windows software that can play/record gsm files?

    IKWYM about Sipgate's vm. I wonder how/why it changes languages - the
    same prompt can be in either German or English. Maybe they forgot to
    change /both/ gsm & ulaw files.

    I rarely use the dialup system. I get the messages forwarded as email
    attachments. Or I'll get them direct off the website.

    anymore.

    You should've done by now, once I realized your address had an 88 in it, I
    re-sent it.
