Can Outlook 2000 Pro receive faxes

By Patrick Horn ·
Is there a way to set up Outlook to receive faxes? We are currently using a third party software to receive faxes and forward them to an e-mail receipient, but this is spotty at best. Another option would be a reliable piece of software that would receive faxes and forward them a little more reliably. Any help is appreciated.

Upgrading to Outlook 2000
Support for Mail, Fax, and Forms in Outlook 2000

When you upgrade to Microsoft Outlook 2000, you must decide which e-mail, fax, and form configurations are appropriate for your organization. For e-mail and fax support, you can choose between Corporate/Workgroup e-mail support and Internet Only e-mail support ? with their corresponding fax solutions. You also must decide whether to include support for electronic forms in your Outlook 2000 installation.

Microsoft Fax, also known as At Work Fax, is part of Microsoft Windows 95 and other products released at the same time. You can use Microsoft Fax in Outlook 97 to send and receive faxes directly from Outlook 97. However, the Outlook 2000 high-performance Internet e-mail feature uses Microsoft Fax in Corporate/Workgroup configuration while Internet Only uses the WinFax Starter Edition.

Note WinFax Starter Edition is a special edition of WinFax that is designed to work exclusively with Outlook 2000. WinFax Starter Edition provides basic fax service for Outlook 2000 Internet e-mail users. WinFax Starter Edition users can upgrade to WinFax Pro.

When you upgrade from Outlook 98 Internet Mail Only to Outlook 2000 Corporate/Workgroup, users automatically get the At Work Fax feature. However, if you select Outlook Internet Mail Only support, users see the WinFax window when they start the fax feature.
