Re: The new task!
it really depends on whether,
a) making something to fo this job is the way you want to go.
b) what software you have and how the autodialling properties of that software works.
(for instance call software like mazimizer, saleslogix, (and I think) ACT!) all integrate with PBX phone switches, so you couldn't use a regular modem even if you wanted to)
Assuming that the autodial properties of the software can be as simple as just sending a number through a com port then you could make a device that listened to the numbers given through the serial port and generated tones based on those numbers (std dial tones), that were put straight on the line, effectivly dialing for the opperator,
