Can anyone let me know how to send faxes (one at time, and in batches) from a VB4 16-bit app, ..the fax software I have is Winfax Pro (8.0).  Some sample code would be great, as I really dont know where to start.  Thanks

It's pretty simple. Since Winfax Pro basically works as if it's a normal printer.  You could specify Winfax to be the default printer, then in VB4 use the regular print routines.

As far as in batches or designated intervals, use either a timer control, or keep an MS Access table that has the desired times to send the faxes. (You'd still need a timer to check this table though.)
