Use SimpleMAPI if possible, it is much easier.
Open a connection with MAPILogon() and send your message (fax or E-Mail depends on the profile you choose - this is an advantage of MAPI) with MAPISendMail() or MAPISendDocuments() and close the connection with MAPILogoff().

Apart from MAPI, you can use the proprietary API of the faxing system you installed (if it has one). However, in my opinion, you should use MAPI whenever possible beacuse it is not specific of one product.
