Every time I try to compose a fax I get the following messages:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\AWSNT032.EXE
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
After clicking OK , I get:
Error Starting Program
The AWFXCG32.DLL file is linked to missing export MAPI32.DLL:23.

It's hard to say for sure since you didn't tell us which version of Windows you're running, but my guess is that your version of Windows doesn't support Microsoft Fax.

From my recollection, Microsoft Fax was bundled with early versions of Win95 but was removed later on. Windows98 and Windows98SE do not include Microsoft Fax and apparently do not support it either since Microsoft says somewhat tersely to "obtain a third-party product" if you want to fax from Win98.

If you ARE running an early version of Win95, you might check the file date on your MAPI32.DLL file and see if it seems right when compared to the other Win95 system files.

Looks as though you are trying to fax from a work station in NT and I think the fax is not supported by NT,it was used in WIN95,upgraded in 98.The device is not accessible is the modem in NT,yet the MAPI32.DLL could be corrupt and renamed,Go to start,find,files or folders,type in MAPI32.DLL and click find now,right clickMAPI32.DLL and choose rename from the short cut menu
Type MAPI32old and press enter
rename each copy
