I liked SoulWinter's Apple Script idea but it didn't quite work for me. I wasted a lot of time trying to get the Python programs to work which just seem to be too far out of date. I modified it to work as follows. I was using Chrome, so you might need to change "Google Chrome" to your browser if you aren't. You also need to change X to the number of unread ...

I used the auto hotkey solution posted earlier with a small addendum: +F9:: Loop, X { SendInput *a! Sleep, 500 SendInput I Sleep, 2000 } return replace X with the number of messages you have divided by 10. I left my laptop alone for a minute or two and went through 500 messages.

I had this problem, and it turned out to be the USB headset I was using on my Mac. It would get further and further out of sync (audio was delayed) as the call progressed, until about 30 minutes in when my voice would be garbled for a little while and it would then get back in sync, and then repeat. I had another USB audio device so I switched to that, ...

Google voice does work like that - though you need a number to initially set it up IIRC. Once thats done, just disassociate your number from the line, and it should just work as a voice mail box. You might also be able to get a number off something like ipkall, and use that with a SIP account. Planned properly this should be free. You can then set do not ...

Unfortunately, unlike Gmail, when you use the "Select All" checkbox and you have multiple pages of results, you don't get the "10 messages selected, click here to select all 501" (paraphrased) link. I'm afraid your only option is to delete them 1 page at a time. There looks like there should be some keyboard shortcuts that would help make this process less ...

You can use Google voicemail as an answering service for a landline. To do this, the phone must have "conditional call forwarding" as one of the features.
