Hi XpUser,

google search brought me Hylafax which is too heavy for my simple job. It is for fax server. I ran it about 6~7 years ago on Linux.

What I need is a simple fax software to send and receive fax via modem similar to Symantec WinFax which I ran several years ago before I migrated to Linux and Unix.

Have you tried to use the Fax programme that comes with XP. When I used to do a bit of faxing that's what I used.

Go to Control Panel / Add Or Remove Programs / Add Remove Windows Components / put a tick in Fax Services. Then set it up with your user details. It's easy to use as well...

Hi Wombat and jefro,

Tks for your advice.

I have been looking around the "fax program" coming with WinXP and can't find it. I think I haven't installed it. I'll check again as advised. Tks
