Here is the wiki for voip.ms, listing all of the compatible Devices:
https://wiki.voip.ms/article/Devices

You probably want to look for an "ATA" [Analog Telephone Adapter] which have RJ-11 plug(s) that can be plugged into your House Phone Wiring System [typically 2-lines, with different Phone Numbers, on standard 4-Wire Phone Cable]....with the Cordless [typ. 2-line] Phones's Base Station [with Answering Machine functionality] plugged into ANY of your house's Phone Jacks. The TWO RJ-11 plugs on the ATA can usually also be configured, with one connected directly to Cordless Phone Base Station and the other RJ-11 plug connected to House Phone Wiring Wall Jack (but only ONE line would be active).

Note that "ATA" come in two configurations: Stand-Alone (Interfaces to your Existing Router via direct Ethernet connection) or INTEGRATED (ATA functionality is BUILT-IN to a VOIP Enabled Wi-Fi Router or Router w/o Wi-Fi). You may ALREADY have one or the other....

Linksys PAP2T is just ONE Example "ATA" that Interfaces to your Existing Router:

And there are LOTS of Cordless Phones with Answering Machine functionality to chose from:

It looks like joe123 wants a VoIP phone with built in voicemail. Unless there is something available I didn't find, the only way to do this is with an ATA and an analog phone with voicemail. I would use the VoIP.ms voicemail features with a VoIP phone. Having voicemail on site may have some uses not met by VoIP.ms voicemail. If archiving is needed, VoIP.ms voice to email would do that.

The Obitalk works well with voip.ms and ordinary phones. VM gets emailed and also flashes the phone LED
