How do you send a file to a fax reciepent through MAPI. I need to code MAPI to understand the difference between an SMTP type address, and FAX.  I was trying to use the VB MAPI controls, but I don't think that will work.  
I will have a CrystalReports file that will need to be processed and sent via fax. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Ronnie

Use the CRW mail options, simply set the mail destination property of the CRW OCX (or use the API) to something like "[FAX:123-456-789]" and the export format to RTF, tell CRW that destination is MAPI E-Mail and it will do the rest (assuming You've a MAPI compliant Fax driver such as the MS one)
