Alternative Fax program?
As Home Premium does not have a Fax program, can anyone suggest an
alternative?

Nothing fancy, just something that I can print to that will send a fax
to a number I type. I guess a sent log would be handy.

I've now tried SnappyFax, and I don't like it: too complicated.

Any ideas?

If it were me, I would instead buy an inexpensive stand-alone fax
machine. I bought mine recently for US$20.

But it isn't you, and I have a fax machine.

Any suggestions on fax programs?

Hi Nigel,

We maintain a list on our website of fax software that has been
through our test process. This is primarily for mid to high end
solutions;

http://www.mainpine.com/software.html

Here's a glossy overview of the test process;

http://www.mainpine.com/isv/lab/

We are about to announce support for a significant number of other
packages with our new PCI Express products.

Unfortunately, Winfax does not work with Vista and I believe that Symantec
does not even support Winfax anymore.

If anyone comes across fax software similar to Winfax that can be used in
Vista, Please let me know!

Thanks, Peter

Hi Peter,

Yes, Winfax has been left to 'die on the vine'. What are your
requirements ?

> Winfax was perfect. Very functional and easy to use. Need to customize cover page. Importing the old winfax phonebook would be nice.


Thanks.
