I’ve recently moved, and our new phone provider doesn’t offer voicemail. Voicemail was always convientient, but I am reluctant to going back to answering machines.
Our house is already wired with Cat5e and standard phone wiring. Since all of our phones are standard phones (no VoIP), I’d like to use the existing phones for my little venture.
Is it possible, using asterisk, to have the line from the phone company come into my asterisk machine, and out to the rest of the phone lines in the house and still work?
I somehow want to get a homemade voicemail system working. We also have two lines in the house, so I’d like voicemail for each of the lines. I am very new to asterisk and I apologize if this is in the wrong section or already stated in the wiki or somewhere (I looked, but didn’t really find what I was looking for).
Also, what hardware do I need besides a computer and a phone line? How might I go about setting something like this up? Thanks for your help.
