You create a Unified Messaging (UM) auto attendant on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 UM server.
You configure the UM auto attendant to only accept dual tone multi-frequency (DTMF) inputs.
You disable directory lookups for the UM auto attendant.
You make a call that is answered by the UM auto attendant asking for the extension number.
You type the extension number.
In this scenario, the UM auto attendant times out unexpectedly. Additionally, an invalid extension number error message is generated.
Note This issue does not occur when you type each digit within 1 second.
This issue occurs because the UM auto attendant does not specify the value of the interdigittimeout attribute when it loads the menu. Therefore, the default value of the interdigittimeout attribute of 1 second is used.
To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
2509911 Description of Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 3
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
