Question about Symantec WinFax Pro for PC

Outlook and Winfax integration

I want to forward a fax that I receive through WinFax via e-mail. Now it seems that I should be able to do that but the screen is mostly greyed out when I attempt it. In trying to integrate the two programs to allow this to happen, all hell broke loose.

I am getting login failed error messages when I start the program. After trying to undo what I did, I get "Before you this change to your e-mail settings can take effect, you must restart Message Manager and the Controller." (I can't find anything about how to shut off the controller.) Lastly, anytime I get a new e-mail in Outlook, Message manger proudly announces that I have received a new fax.

Any thoughts?

The internet connection that you use doesn't matter with WinFax, since WinFax requires a fax modem to send and receive faxes. You cannotuse your broadband modem to send receive faxes with WinFax PRO. http://www.getfaxing.com/forums

Restoring sent and received faxes to fax logs


That's not the way to backup your logs. You copied only the fax images, and not the logs to go with them. This is a common error that is made quite often. Unless you have the original log structure, your data (logs) that link to the actual fax images (fxds, fxrs, etc.) are lost.

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.

Receiving Fax Line always 'busy'


Installing fax software can be tricky, particularly if you want to import phone-book listings from an existing database or PIM, such as Microsoft Outlook. But WinFax Pro proves easy to configure. A series of introductory screens walks you through installation; you just click Next to accept the default configuration. In our tests, WinFax Pro accurately detected our fax modem and seamlessly imported our contacts from Microsoft Outlook. By comparison, competing fax programs either don't import directly from Outlook or make the process trickier than it needs to be. you can try to look on website and there will explain to you. http://reviews.cnet.com/e-mail/winfax-pro-10-0/4505-3536_7-1536745.html
