Hi Joris,

The Quicklink message centre software supplied as standard with my 
USR sportster external modem about 18 months ago includes options to 
set the modem and pc up as an answering machine. The modem includes a 
small internal microphone which is adequate to record an answering 
machine message. The software can be set up for multiple mailboxes, 
such as "Press 1 for sales, 2 for orders" etc. as well. The PC can be 
left on "listening" to the phone, and will respond to incoming calls ok.
