Is there any way to auto-dial from a PHP page... or some sort of functionality that could be used in conjunction with it? I am wanting a user to be able to auto-dial and either be able to talk to the recipient his or herself, or have an automated message be played...

is this even possible without serious, serious amounts of trouble?

I haven't heard of anything like this and it sounds complicated.

You're best bet is finding some sort of functionality like this in some language other than PHP and use PHP's exec or passthru commands to actually perform this

not sure if I understand who's meant to be calling who here, but dialling from the web server end, you'll probably need some CTI kit, and a whole bunch of software which is usually written in either perl or java for the dialling and message playing

...or to dial from the client side, you'll probably need to make a call to tapiRequestMakeCall() which is part of the windows tapi api - but once you start using the tapi interfece, you're in dll hell which is not a good place to be (especially for your *nix users)

I'd say that it looks like it's a serious amount of trouble alright
