Hi everybody Whe I had a 3com external moden, I had software supplied with it to also enable me to sen and receive fax's.
I dont use that anymore and just use a BT Voyager 100 to enable me to connect via broadband.
This has meant that I no longer have the fax facility.
I am probably a bit thick here but is there any way I can use the existing modem and some software to enable me to send and receive fax's again. I dont send many fax's so some free software if necessary would be great.
Don't know about Vista, but all Windows versions up to XP have their own fax application.
Windows Messaging was perhaps the best of the lot as it operated in the same way as Outlook Express, so was easy to use and configure; XP has the Fax Console, but you may have to use the installation disk to install it from Add/Remove Windows Components.

There are, of course, alternatives such as fax-to-e-mail and e-mail to fax services, which means broadband can be used. Some examples:
