We are considering implementing Microsoft Unified Messaging in our Exchange 2007 Environment.  However, for compliance reasons we don't want the voicemail to be sent as an attachment.  Instead, we would like to have a link placed in the body of the message to retrieve the voicemail.  

Has anyone done something like this?  If so could you provide some feedback.  I have though about using the attachment filter and striping the .wav file and replacing with a message however, that in not the ideal solution.

Thanks for all your help in advance.

I understand your issue but I'm afraid this is not possible. The exchange team did publish an article about having voicemails in the mailbox so give that a read.

You can replace these WAVs after they are received with links, cutting them to some location (say, network share) with free Replace Attachments with Links utility.

Moreover, the commercial product ReliefJet Essentials for Outlook can process these attachments automatically! You can even process Exchange mailboxes from command line cutting these WAVs (Professional Edition allows that).

Thank you very much for all your help on this.  I will investigate both products.  Is a third party tool still required with 2010?

Why server-side only? You can schedule this replacement on the administrator's machine by using command line batch.
