Voicemail.conf error "maxsilence should be less than minsecs or you
may get empty messages" does not make sense to me - The two settings
aren't really related, or at least not from a business case perspective.
The rationale is, say you have a message where nobody says something
(and just hangs up or lets it time out).
Suppose you have minsecs=5 and maxsilence=10. The goal of the minsecs
setting is to enforce a minimum length so overly brief messages are
discarded. The maxsilence setting exists to not cut people off
prematurely, which will happen if this setting is too low. However, if
maxsilence is greater than minsecs, then the system will always wait at
least minsecs time before ending the recording. In other words, this
would render minsecs useless since no message will ever be too short for
the system to accept it. I haven't tested this, but I believe that's how
they interact from what I recall.
Assume maxsilence is 10 seconds, and minsecs is 5 seconds - That means
a voicemail left must be greater than 5 seconds in length, and the
system will wait up to 10 seconds of silence to automatically stop
Conversely, if maxsilence is set to 5 seconds and minsecs is set to 10
seconds, then the voicemail must be greater than 10 seconds and the
system will wait up to 5 seconds to automatically stop recording.
