I have installed Windows 95 quite a number of times after putting in a USRobotics Sportster Winmodem 33.6 Faxmodem and the FAX: driver comes up "Unknown Local Port"!  Why and How do I fix the problem without reloading the software again and again to no avail?

What COM port you have assigned for your Faxmodem ? What IRQ ?

Use the Microsoft Exchange Mail client instead of the Windows Mail client for the Send Fax macro to work as expected with Microsoft Gateway to FAX.
 
For proper execution of the macro, it is important that the Microsoft Fax driver be set to the GENI: (Unknown local port) in the Microsoft Windows 95 printer properties section.
 
-OR-
 
Configure the Microsoft Fax driver so that it prints to FILE. Select the print option in any Windows application and give the file a compatible DCX file name, such as <myfile>.DCX. Next, attach the *.DCX file to a Microsoft Mail message in either the Windows or Microsoft Exchange Mail client.
 
NOTE: For attachments to be properly handled by the fax gateway, it is necessary that the MSFAX.DRV file that ships with the Gateway to Microsoft FAX be used in lieu of the MSFAX.DRV that ships with Windows 95.
