Re: A few questions about spool files and faxing
From the developers:
#1: The vast majority of spool files should still be EMF. XPS is (currently)
used only from managed (.NET) applications or by specific drivers, and from
your perspective they are just RAW files.
#2 FaxSendDocument should work the way it works today. There are some
changes in the function design and the way files are archived in the fax
server. But from the user stand point, everything should work smoothly.
