    Outlook and Fax (Office XP SP2)

    I read in MS Office Search on the Internet that Outlook 2002 doesn't support fax. Why Not? and Is there any other way to fax from Outlook? I use the Print>Fax in a document, but I would have thought that it should be possible within Outtlook too. I have a FAx Mail Transport (MAPI) in my Send/Receive list as well is in my list of Email Accounts in Outlook.

    I use Office XP SP2 + Windows XP SP1.

    Re: Outlook and Fax (Office XP SP2)

    Can you post a URL that states that XP doesn't support faxing? I can't find that to be the case. Can you describe your environment; for example are you on a server or is this a standalone machine.

    At home my wife uses Outlook 2002 on dial-up to frequently fax documents. When I look for information on faxing in Outlook 2002 in MS, I get a lot of hits on using fax services in XP.

    Also, your post is a substantive duplicate of <post#=373901>post 373901</post#>; please don't duplicate posts.

    Re: Outlook and Fax (Office XP SP2)

    Wim, here's the Help from Outlook 2003, I expect 2002 will be similar:

    <big>Send a fax</big>
    <font color=blue>Send a fax using a fax service (recommended)</font color=blue>

    1. Do one of the following:<UL><LI>In Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Office Excel 2003, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003, or Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI), on the File menu, point to Send To, and then click Recipient using Internet Fax Service.<LI>From Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, on the File menu, point to New, and then click Fax.[/list]3. The first time you use fax services, you will be prompted to sign up with a provider. Click OK to open your Web browser, and then follow the signup instructions on the Web site.
    4. Close your Web browser, and then return to the Microsoft Office program you want to fax from.
    5. Repeat step 1. An e-mail message will open in Outlook with your document attached as a .TIF (image) file, or you can attach a file to the message.
    6. Complete the Fax Recipient, Fax Number, and Subject fields.

    Notes<UL><LI>It is recommended that you use a cover sheet and complete the To and Subject fields to ensure that your fax reaches the intended recipient.
    <LI>You can enter a fax number from your address book. Country codes in your address book must begin with a plus sign (+); for example, +61/555-1212.
    <LI>You can add only one recipient at a time. To send your fax to multiple recipients, click Add More, and then repeat step 5.[/list]6. In the Fax Service pane, choose the options you want, and then complete the cover sheet located in the body of the e-mail message.
    7. Click Send.

    Notes<UL><LI>You must have Outlook and Word installed to use the fax service, and Outlook must be open to send your fax. If Outlook is not open and you click Send, the fax will be stored in your Outbox and then sent the next time you open Outlook.
    <LI>After you have signed up with a provider, you can begin with step 4.[/list]<font color=blue>Send a fax using a fax modem</font color=blue>

    This procedure applies to Microsoft Word only and requires that your fax modem be set up as a printer on your system.
    1. On the File menu, point to Send To, and then select Recipient using a Fax Modem.
    2. Follow the steps in the Fax Wizard to send your fax.
    Note Your fax hardware or software may provide more ways to send faxes. For example, when your fax modem is set up correctly, the option to print to your fax modem should appear in the Print dialog box. Using that approach, you can send faxes in Microsoft Office programs other than Word. For information, see the documentation that came with your product.
