WinXP how to receive fax with PC wakeup and auto forward as emailLocked
Ok – here’s a challenge for you all: How do I set up my Win XP Pro SP3 PC at home so that when a fax comes in on my fax phone line that goes to a modem card in the PC, it wakes up the PC, the PC receives the fax and then the PC forwards it automatically by email to two or three pre-designated email recipients?
To make this worse, I’m not sure what I mean by “wake up” the PC. I understand there are varied levels of reduced power consumption, and I’m not sure how low I can go so that the PC is still “wakeable” fast enough to receive the fax. On this score, I might be a bit ahead of the game because the PC is a newish Dell Optiplex 755 with built-in ASF and (if I turn it back on) AMT. (I don’t know what ASF or AMT mean, although they sort of sound like a cup of coffee for a PC at rest.)
On this PC, I use MS Outlook Express for email although I could turn on my Outlook if strictly necessary or install a different email program.
Can you tell I’m somewhere between a newbie and a home intermediate? Please do throw technical lingo at me, but I’ll need it translated into English and then granular step-by-step instructions.
