If WinFax is asking you to select a type, its probably because it didn't detect a fax modem.

Make sure your modem works in Windows first If you can dial out of your computer using your cell phone using Windows, and your modem supports fax class 1 / 2 / 2.0 , then it MAY work.

Are there instructions available, for someone not that PC literate, to send an e-mail with a Winfax Pro document as an attachment?


If you know how to send an email, the rest is easy.. Firstly, save your winfax document into your "my documents" folder and make sure you remember the file name. Setup your email as you want it then click on the "add attachment" button at the top of the screen (this depends on which email system you are using but most attachments can be added from the new email screen). In hotmail and windows live, use the attach button and select file. In outlook and outlook express, use the attach button on the top toolbar. Click on file and a dialog box will open asking for the file you wish to attach. Use the box to navigate to your my documents folder and then select the winfax file you saved earlier. If the file is not showing, click on the file type box and select all files. once you have found your winfax file, select it and click on "ok" or "attach". Wait for the system to upload your file and then click on "send".. You're done !!!

"No acknowledgement received on last attempt"


Usually, this error occurs after sending a page, or prior to sending all the pages of a multipage fax.

There are many reasons why this occurs, and it is not always easy to determine why.

You may want to read up on "types of modems" found in the following document
http://www.getfaxing.com/winfax/2009/06/25/first-time-guide-to-winfax-pro/

also, winfax settings could be incorrect , or you might not have the best configuration setup for your modem in WinFax.

Notification when fax arrives


In the 90s, cell phone companies and pager companies use to provide a seperate phone number answered by a computer that you could dial with your computer modem which would page/text a specific device you specified.

Most cell phone companies no longer offer this service.

WinFax/TalkWorks can notify your pager or cellular phone (using SMS messaging) whenever new faxes or voice messages arrive.

WinFax/TalkWorks works with Tone Only, Numeric, Personalized Numeric, and Alphanumeric pagers. To use the pager notification feature, you must know:

1.the capabilities of your pager/cellular phone
2. the telephone numbers WinFax/TalkWorks must dial to connect to your service provider
3. your personal identification number (if your pager supports this feature)

I can't send to certain fax machines with WinFax Pro


Yes, some modems might have problems with Service Pack 3. You might need to update the Windows modem drivers.

Alternatively, there might be problems with the settings in WinFax for your specific modem.

You'll need to post more information on the fax modem you are using.

Winfax Pick-up


Try looking at best buy for a fax switching device it can tell the difference between data and voice. I don't know how well they work but i have not used that particular program. I did find this though on another site http://www.windowsitlibrary.com/Content/238/15/1.html

You can have Microsoft Fax automatically answer every incoming call to your modem or, instead, you can manually choose which calls to answer. The quickest way to change this setting is to right-click on the fax icon on the Windows taskbar then choose Modem Properties to display the Fax Modem Properties dialog box . Another way to get to these properties is from within Exchange; choose Tools, Microsoft Fax Tools, Options, then switch to the Modem tab, select the modem, and click the Properties button.

So you have to change the settings in Exchange I assume

Winfax pro suddenly faxing to wrong number


you have some options, so choose one.
  1. remove your fax
  2. configure your fax to answer later (maybe after ringing 10 times) and configure the winfax to answer before (something like ringing 5 times or less)
the problem here is that the fax answer and start receiving the fax and the winfax receive the fax signal at same time. check the winfax maybe you have the half part that the fax modem not has printed stored in winfax, maybe.

as I said, your better choice is removing the fax modem. even configuring like I said before, maybe the two continue to try to receive the fax at same time.

hope it helps.
