A while ago I needed to send a fax so I Googled and found MightyFax. Downloaded the 30-day fully-functional trial, and used it. It seemed to run like a dream -- scanned the message in, found my dial-up modem, connected, sent the fax, received acknowledgement codes, etc., etc., and filed the message in the "Sent" folder.
When I got to work, where the fax machine is that I sent to, the fax hadn't arrived. Tried again yesterday, seemed to send okay but no fax arrived at the other end.
Any ideas, please?
Or more to the point, can anyone recommend a straightforward preferably free fax software?
I use Supervoice which normally comes free on most Modem install CDs. Check your own modem CD and see if it is on there. If not I have a couple of old Modem CDs not being used anymore. email me via the envelope and I will post one out to you.
First thing. If you are on broadband you can't send faxes. You require a dialup fax modem.
Secondly, if you have a suitable modem, all versions of Windows have an excellent fax utility. You may need to install it from Add/Remove Programs>Add/Remove Components - it's the Fax Console in XP - and you will probably need the Windows installation disk handy.
PaulB2005, I've emailed technical support already, and they've come up with no suggestion except maybe the receiving fax machine stores faxes in memory instead of printing them. I've checked, and that's not the case.
Stuartli, I installed Win XP fax console last night. Seemed to go okay, no errors reported, re-booted when finished, but the fax menu is "empty" when I go to it. Must be related to other problems I'm having (see my thread on Critical System Errors), so I'll have to abandon this until the other problem is sorted.
