Fax from Outlook 2007

Post by Q2xpdmVEYX » Sat, 29 Aug 2009 18:16:01


Is it possible (in the home environment) to use MS Outlook 2007 to send a
composed email to a fax number, using the dial-up modem and phone line
attached?

When working with my last employer, it was possible but I do know that there
was a huge amount of technology behind it, with break-out to fax servers etc.

I would appreciate your comments.

Same as all other versions. Outlook 2007 will integrate with Windows XP Fax
or Vista's Windows Fax and scan.

I've read your fine document.

You say "All that is required to send faxes from Outlook is to include the
Fax Mail Transport in your Outlook profile"

How does one do this with Outlook 2007? I can't seem to find any similar
paths or tabs as metioned in yr doc for 2000/2.

Would appreciate any help.
Thank you

Same procedure, slightly different path:
Tools > Account Settings > Email > New... > Other
If you have a fax transport installed and configured it will appear as "Fax
Mail Transport" that you can add to the profile.

Thank you, Russ

Works a dream, but I would not have found that path alone!!
