I've been using for prepaid LD for years, and they
offer a product called MessageOne that can receive voice and fax
messages and send them to an email address. I've only been able to
get one number per account, the system picks it for you, and it's
$1/month for the service, but that's better than some of the
alternatives. The only connection I have to them is as a customer.
I'm not aware of any other truly 'free' providers, although I haven't
looked in about a year.

Good luck, and let us know what you settle on!
