Sending Asterisk voicemail to multiple emails

Let’s say the voice mail is configured as I described in the article – Setting up voicemail in Asterisk.
There is the following context:

[voicemailcontext]
207 => 1111,Username,test@example.com,,attach=yes|tz=ua|delete=yes

If you want to send a voice message to several email addresses, then instead of test@example.com, for example, testmail:

[voicemailcontext]
207 => 1111,Username,testmail,,attach=yes|tz=ua|delete=yes

Then open the /etc/aliases file in a text editor:

sudo nano /etc/aliases

And let’s specify aliases for testmail:

testmail: support@example.net,user@example.net

For the changes to take effect, you need to update the alias database with the command:

cd /etc
sudo newaliases

Done, Asterisk will send a message to testmail, and it will be automatically forwarded to the specified addresses.
