I have Skype-In with voicemail. How can I download the voice messages for use in a podcast?

I'm setting up a podcast (if you'd like to know more and possible participate please email me at email@example.com). Using caller voicemails is a big part of the idea behind the show. I have a skype account with voicemail and skype in so people can call from any phone and leave a message. The audio quality is sufficient, now I just need to get the files onto my computer so that I can edit them into my podcase. Anyone know how, other than playing them through a mixer (which I don't have, and want to avoid as long as possible)? Budget solutions are best.
In a related question, does anyone know how to fade the level of an audio track in Audacity? I've just started with Audacity, and the level slider on the left lowers the volumn of the entire track. I'd like to pick a point and have it fade to a lower level several second later and stay at that level. I can do this in my video editing software, but don't want to have to use my video editing software for an audio podcast.
Seriously, if you'd like to know more, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have the domain almostliveradio.com (whatcha think?) but it may not be working yet.
