ROLM PhoneMail System Info?

I have been offered an IBM/ROLM phone mail system. I'm curious if
it's something standard that's been put into use as a phone mail
system, or if it's some weird proprietary thing. It's about 4 feet
high, and about 4' x 3' or so. It runs on 220VAC at what appears to
be many amps. Inside (the parts I could see - it's still in use at
the moment) were several cards in slots, a physically large hard
drive, a monster power supply, a tape drive, and some other bits.
What I could see was:

Priam P/N 330352 hard drive

ROLM 40311 Phone Mail System

Voice Compression I/O Card
8 Channel Voice Card
AP 4MB RAM 41508
System Processor II 41002

Unless it's to go to the junkyard, I need to let them know by Friday
(tomorrow) sometime. The hard drive is making "bad bearing" noises,
and the voice mail has started to "stutter". They found a newer box
to replace it that's about the size of a bread box for less than a
refurb hard drive would cost. I'm not sure what I'd do with it, but
if it's got anything useful in it, I'd try to salvage it for someone
else, if they can arrange shipping.
