As Matt said, mgetty/vgetty.

My setup is command line driven.

e.g. come home, see AA light on modem, look in voice spool dir.,
"rmdplay va12244.rmd", delete file, delete flag file, reset modem.

You could easily add a gui. Seen any good ones Matt?

You can add scripts for multiple voicemail boxes, remote retrieval, etc.
It can user caller-ID to give a personalised greeting to the caller,
or just pick up calls from numbers you dont know.
