We have the CUPC client installed and working here, but I am not able to use immediate divert to voicemail on the CUPC client for external calls.
The used desk phone for audio box is ticked.
When an internal call comes through; I can push that call to voicemail.
If the call is external, I get an error message and the phone continues to ring.
When I untick the use desk phone

Hope it helps.
