How can I setup Microsoft version fax in windows 2000? I've been to add/remove windows components and I can't find it. Also I've done a search in this discussion archives, but could'nt find what I need.

Please help!!

Nothing in the Help files? Probably have to install the fax components from the OS disk.

Check out your analogue modem setup disk. It will probably have Supervoice on it. A far superior fax and answerphone programme, which is what I use. You can send faxes from any programme that has a print mode, like word, excel, publisher, paint shop pro etc... It will receive faxes but, your computer has to be on and the programme running. To get round that I subscribe to Trinite at £23 a year and all incoming faxes go to my email Inbox. So I get my faxes whether or not my PC is on or off. Trinite is at click here

Tiscali does a free fax to e-mail service if you are one of its subscribers.

You are given an 0871-xxx-xxx number as your fax number - Tiscali takes a percentage of the sender's cost for the fax sent - and, of course, the beauty is that your system doesn't have to be on to receive faxes.

I use to use the similar FaxMe service, but this folded about 18 months ago. Tiscali's service is equally as good.

By the way I used to use the Win95/98 Windows Messaging fax programs, found on the OS disks under wms.exe and Awfax.exe.

Messaging is very similar to Outlook Express in appearance and operation, but I now use the excellent XP Fax Console, which does all I require (plus the Tiscali fax to e-mail service mentioned above for incoming faxes).
