Missing manual recipient input fields? - 2nd Request
Why aren't there manual input fields for the recipient's company name and
fax number in the SEND dialog in Windows Vista Fax and Scan? As per online
help, the user should be able to manually send a fax to a person not listed
in their address book, however the standard send dialog is missing the key
fields mentioned above. Furthermore, pressing the SEND button displays a
'Check Names' dialog showing that the person is not found in the address
book. The recipient company name and phone number are critical fields that
should be allowed both in the cover page design and in the cover page
fill-in dialog when
sending a fax. Any suggestions in this regard?

Sounds like you don't have this quite figured out. One-off faxing can use
only the fax address. If you want the rest of the fields populated in your
cover page, store your recipients in one of the databases WFS supports:
Windows Contacts or Outlook.

This, I agree is a bad oversight from MSFT but you can get
around it, in an irregular way.

Open New Fax -> click 5th icon from left. This opens the manual
fields you can enter information in.

I tried it for you and used these settings to sort of give you what
you wanted.

Untick country code if sending within own country or leave it ticked
to complete all fields.

1st field General Electric Co. Ltd. - Mr John Smith

2nd field after country code - 800 555 4598

When you preview the fax the cover page looks like this.

Recipient: General Electric Co. Ltd. - Mr Smith<8005554598>
Fax No.: 8005554598

etc, etc.

It's not exactly what you wanted but it suffices in my country
as an acceptable fax.

Re: Missing manual recipient input fields? - 2nd Request
Thank you LoneWolf, this was a very respectable work-around! I am
surprised, however, that Microsoft doesn't provide these fields right on the
'Send' dialog, especially in light of the fact that help indicates you can
manually send a one-time fax to someone who is not in the address book. I
liked your consolidaton of recipient name and company, but would prefer
separate fields since cover pages can be designed to accept both items as
separate variables. Once again, Microsoft leaves the customer to try and
figure it out (no detailed instructions in help), while frustrating them
with messages that warn of missing information.

Thanks for the help!
