Interfacing with Microsoft Fax

I have a contact management application that I am developing.  I want to interface with Microsoft Fax.  Does anyone have sample code of how to do this.  Just basic stuff like call it and pass Name and Phone Number to it.  I am currently using WinExec to call the EXE...but don't have the ability to pass it any informaton.  I have TDialer that calls the Windows 95 Phone Dialer and populates the Phone Number.  Is there a similar component out there for Microsoft Fax?

Any information on this topic would be well appreciated.

Yes, I have found once a good component to call exe files and other like this and I still use it. I'll send it to you. I also use a very good component to communicate with the com ports.
I'll send these two to your e-mail. All freeware! Let know if that's what your looking for.

Why making new components if they already exist! Thanks to the authers!

PS. Can't you communicate to the fax with MAPI?
    Send that also to you.
Have fun!

I am interested in using MAPI to get to the Microsoft Fax but I'm not sure where to find the resources that tell me how to interface with MAPI via Delphi.  Could you point me in a direction?

I'm not totally sure how it works (MAPI to fax), but I think you can send to a fax with MAPI. Haven't I sended you the component temail2? In there you can find information about that!

Hi guys,

I think it worth to take a look at Delphi Super Page:

http://www.cdrom.com/pub/delphi_www/ftp/d10free/temail2.zip

Description:

"TEmail is a MAPI component. It allows for easy but powerful distribution of MAPI email (not SMTP !!), faxes and other
data through MAPI clients like MS Exchange. ( ver. 2.06.00, Extensive online documentation and demonstration programs are available."

D1, D2, D3 - FREEware

I didn't try it, but the description sounds good to this question subject, isn't it ?

Regards,
Itamar

Itamar,  thanks, I always first try to give comments. If the comment is correct I'll answer the question. I think that's a lot easier for all of us (because then the question stays in the 'asked' section and we get lots of solutions). Pitty that it can't work this way always (as you've seen also). I don't care about the points, just want to help. But if someone gets the points he doesn't deserve I really get angry!

MichaelLMcDonald, does the zip file satifies your hunger or do you need more information?

The Fax part of the TEMAIL is helpful but I still have outstanding issues.  For some reason when Microsoft Outlook is installed on the PC it looks for an existing contact entry using the fax number and prompts you to create a new one or search for one.  I just want to bring up Microsoft Fax or Outlook fax and stuff the Phone Number in the Phone Number field.  However, if this isn't possible with out first creating contact entries into Outlook I understand.

I am satisfied with the original question.  Thank you very much.  You can close my question from the pending list.

To be correct (to give a short answer).

Look at the documentation of the TEmail2.zip.

I'm sorry but I can't help you with your new problem with Microsoft Outlook, I don't have it so I can't try something out.
