Are there any FREE fax softwear downloads pref. one with voice mail facility, if so could anyone direct me to a link please. My OS is XP home edition.

There is fax software already as part of XP although it may not be installed by default.

Go to Start, Printers & Faxes and see. If not there, look in Help & Support.

Note that you MUST have an analogue modem setup for it to work. Fax will not function from broadband.

I have a spare copy of Supervoice Data/Fax/Voice. It allows internet connection Fax and provides an answering machine. Cotact me if you would like me to send it.

Thanks for that, I didn't know that was on the installation disc I was told only XP Pro had this facility. One other question, I have broadband, but I also have another Modem which was pre installed on my computer from new, can I reconnect this modem into my phone line and run it in tandem with my Cable Modem, or will this cause complications??

It should not cause problems. There have been a few similar queries here lately. It would be the same as connecting another phone or fax machine.

There are two free fax/phone packages in addition to the XP option, as already stated not cable compatable :-

As Agent Smith says, there should be no problems doing this. I have had my Fax facility set up like this since I've been on broadband - almost two years.
