I'm placing outgoing calls using Asterisk call files on Asterisk 1.8. My call files are very simple and have no MaxRetries or RetryTime specified. If a call succeeds, the corresponding callfile is deleted.
However, if the call fails for some reason, the callfile does not get deleted. Instead, it stays in the /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing directory, and has the following appended to it: "StartRetry: 1276 1 (1314160379)"
Why is that happening? I'm expecting the file to be deleted immediately after the call, no matter what the resulting status of the call is.
