I want just a few things in an answering machine. I want it to beep when it has new messages. I want it to blink a light or show a number to indicate it has old messages. I want it to tell me the time and date of each message. I want it to e easy to delete the message I want without accidentally deleting the next message. perhaps most importantly, I want the sound quality of all the messages left for us to be very high on playback, and optionally I would like to be able to record as many as fifteen seperate 5-minute messages.

When we went out shopping, we saw tons of answering machines with multiple mailboxes, caller ID, etc, but we couldn't seem to find any with these simple features. Does anyone know of one?

(we're looking at both plain answering machines and answering machine/cordless phone units. The ones where you can check the messages from the handheld part of the phone are especially cool.)

Someday, I will write some nice answering machine software for Linux, and have my comptuer answer the phone. Then it can have any features I (or anybody else, since it will be Open Source) want. I'd recommend some Windows software to you, but I don't think Windows is reliable enough to serve as an answering machine.
