fax popup notification

I have set up Microsoft Shared Fax Services on a Windows 2003 server. The
Fax printer is shared out giving everyone the correct permissions. The
client PCs are Windows XP with the fax service loaded. I am using Outlook
2000 in corporate mode (I have an Exchange 2003 server) with Fax Transport
Service loaded. Everything is working well except for the notifications. I
can fax sucessfully from the "Send Fax Wizard" and from Outlook using the
[fax:#######] format. On the server, in the Fax Manager I have the "Enable
message boxes as reciepts" box checked. When using the "Send Fax Wizard" I
get a popup notification when a fax has been sucessfully sent. However,
when sending from Outlook there is no popup notification. If I select SMTP
email notification in the Fax manager, I do get email notifications when a
fax has been sent from either source; it only fails with the popup
notification using Outlook. Is there some setting in outlook I need to
select to get a popup notification? Any suggestions?

Thanks.
Joe

Are you talking about the notifications that normally appear from the
systray? If so, I haven't seen any similar reports. You might try posting
the WinXP Fax group where these things are handled. I sincerely doubt that
integration of Outlook 2000 with Windows 2003 Fax war ever tested.

Those notifications would probably work if I could get those to come up, but
actually I was referring to the windows messenging boxes popups. I have
Windows Messenging services turned on & they come up when I fax using the
wizard, just not from Outlook. Actually any type of popup notification
would work, I just need something that comes up to let the user know that
their fax did or did not go through.

I see. So this is not a fax service problem at all, but rather an Outlook
problem. Have you tried one of the programming groups to see if Outlook can
be programmed to invoke the Windows Messaging Service?

There are also some threads in the Windows Fax groups I referred you to
earlier:
