Yeah ... Ok, they could do it in a similar way ... what I describe below
works intertel Axxes and probably Eclipse systems with very recent
firmware, since they are basically the same as AXXESS from what I hear.
Older eclipse systems may be a different story..

1) Create a call routing announcement that plays nothing and immediately
times out to mailbox 214.

2) For the forwarding path for ext 262, instead of having it go to
voicemail (default ext for that is usually 2500, dunno what it is on
your system), have it forward to the call routing announcement. That
call routing announcement will immediately forward them to the 214 mailbox.
