No hardware required.  There are one or more pieces of software that do the 
trick.  I can get these installed and trial'd once the calling stuff is in 

For voicemail notification through email, I'm going to need email addresses for 

What are you currently using for an email server?  I havn't done it yet, but it 
might be possible to perform some trickery to better integrate the email, 
voicemail and email.

Do you have any virusscanning, spamscanning stuff on your email server?

> transferring it to an analog fax machine.
> 3) Based on the DID number, e-mail the resulting fax to a specific inbox
> The end result--when coupled with doing the same for voice mail
