I was wondering if there is such a thing as a linux voicmail server distro or any distro that could accomplish the same thing as one. Also what kind of features would it have and what are minimum specs.

just to clarify, when i say voicemail server i mean a computer that connects to a phone line and manages the voicemail (ex: for a business).

thank you very much

sorry another question
does the computer need a special card to be able to connect to the phone system (in this case toshiba)

EDIT: yeah turns out the software is free but to connect the server to the phone system you need an $800 card
