I have set up the fax wizard on my laptop and on looking at the outbox the doc i want to send is sat as pending

have tried to send it at a specific time etc and nothing happens

Silly question, but you are trying to send it by dial up modem and not broadband ?

  rins36 16:27 25 Nov 2004

Yes dial up but managed to send one before from the desktop pc yonks ago

Sorry rins36 I will have to leave this to someone else, my own track record with Fax is nothing to boast about. Good luck.

If your finances will stretch to it I recomend
click here I have used this Programme for years it's very easy to use and is far superior to Windows Fax.

Have you checked the configuration in Fax Console is correct?

  Stuartli 11:00 27 Nov 2004

As with all previous Windows fax programs from Windows Messaging Service onwards (wms.exe and Awfax.exe), XP's Fax facility is simple, straightforward and easy to use.

It does exactly what most people require.

Checked all configuration in Fax Console is correct
Yes its all correct!

I have not used the WinXP fax but, like Cesar, I highly recommend Winfax Pro 10.

Available on the Amazon site from £11.97 here:

Strange. It works fine for me.

But there's still no need to actually buy a fax program or even get a freeware version - it must be something simple and perhaps a case of not seeing the wood for the trees.

That's happened to me on more than one occasion...:-)
