The post referred to by Xevios explains it fully.

The short reply is NO. You will need to use an ordinary 56k dial-up modem, connected to a phone line, in combinaion with a fax programme such as WinFax.

OK Gang, we can now fax over Broadband - it works! Thanks, deadneat.

Don't want to sound like a stick in the mud, BUT... what if you want to send something of a delicate nature? And I'm not talking about the obvious!

What I mean is, a personal or corporate thing. The server gets to see it!

The link provided by deadneat works OK.

However, it was disappointing to see that the fax is received just like a text message. Any formatting and style is lost. Plus, a large advert is included.

For the cost of the phone call, I will stick with WinFax.

Before I install it, has anybody any experience with the fax facility built into Windows XP?

I have never used the Windows XP fax, (I don`t have XP), but from a posting here last year it seems as though there might be problems.
