Windows Messaging is no longer a standard part of Windows 98. It is still supplied on the CD-ROM. Q187549 of the knowledge base has all the details. Check out

These faxes can be marked up by windows imaging. If you want to edit faxes you'll need to invest in an OCR package which can transform the faxes into editable text.

You have partly answered my question. But my requirement is not fulfilled. I do not want to edit the FAX, instead of that I was utilizing FAX facility' editable mode to transfer the files through modem to remote location.

is it still possible to utilize Win98 standard facility to transfer the files between two PCs , operatining on Win98 at both end and/or 1 Pc as win98 , other as win95 ?

Thanking you

If you want to transfer files between two machines, the fax is not the way to do it. It's much easier to connect through the dial-up networking server.

Open up Dial-up Networking and under the Connections menu select Dial-up Server. Assing a password for the service.

Make sure that the client for MS networking is installed on both machines and that the server has the file and printer sharing over MS networks service installed. Share out at least one folder on the server.

On the client, make a new dial-up networking connection and enter the telephone number of the server machine. The name is not important and the password should be the one assigned on the server.

You will get a list of all the shares on the server machine and you can transfer files both ways (depending on your share rights). After you have connected, you can drag the share into your network neighborhood and connect to the machine by just double-clicking the share.

Very Useful Information. Otherwise also, I could locate the facility in Add Ons in Win98.

Thanks.
