Asterisk Voicemail can certainly send an e-mail when a message is left.  By 
cunning use of a procmail recipe, this can be used to send an SMS or do 
anything else.

I've seen boxes with 2 cores, 4 GB RAM, 8 outside lines, all calls recorded 
using MixMonitor and no swapping; 4 cores, 8 GB RAM, 20 outside lines on an 
ISDN30 and more via SIP trunks, MixMonitor recording and again no swapping.

Probably, but good luck trying to find it  :)
