I have been aware of Asterisk for years and have always been meaning to get around to installing it and testing out its features but because of the usual lack of time . . have never gotten around to it. Now I really do need to scrap my old POTS answering machine and be able to have access to left messages from my Linux workstation or server. If I only want the voicemail facility from Asterisk to begin with - does that make the installation any simpler or will I still be installing a complete system anyway?
