Outlook does not like Microsoft FAX

By anejako ·
Dear All:

I am having the darnedest time trying to make Microsoft FAX function on an IBM ThinkPad 770 laptop running Windows 95. My user is simply trying to use Microsoft FAX as a printer to send files to, which would normally go over the FAX modem.

When he sends things to Microsoft FAX, Microsoft FAX just sits there idle in the system tray, not doing its job.

Uninstalling Outlook 98 and reinstalling Windows Messaging and Microsoft FAX did not help.

Is there anything I can do, or do I have to go find new fax client software?

Thanks in advance for your help.

It's not surprising that Outlook doesn't like Microsoft Fax - Microsoft itself hated it so much that it vanished after Windows95 never to be seen again.

My experience has been that you can spend a huge amount of time trying to get Microsoft Fax to work - if time has money value, it's usually a far better investment to purchase WinFax and be done with it.
