I have found a few packages for various linux distro's. When I find one that
has the capabilities I want I am planning to try to compile it for bsd.
(although I have never tried that before). The site I found most of the
choices on is
http://br.linuxstart.com/applications/communications/faxvoicemail.html . You
may find what you want or close there. SOHO looks to be the most promising.
