I have had a bit of a disaster and basically I need a quick fix. I had VOIP set up using Cisco ATA 186, and just had my analog phone hooked to it. Unfortunately this has now gone south for one reason or another, but I am getting it replaced. The replacement is going to take minimum two weeks to get back to me.
I have a USB Sip phone which I have pluged in and setup, but the only problem I have now is that I do not have an answering machine. Before I had this on the analog phone plugged into the ATA 186, but now it just riings. Bcause I am away from my office 90% of the time it is essential that I have the ability for my customers to leave messages.
Is there any software I can use for this function, or do I have to go to the expense of getting a voice mail service for now?
Many thanks in advance.
