Linking Windows Messaging to MS Fax in Win98

I recently installed Windows Messaging and MS Fax from the Windows 98 CD in the Tools/Oldwin95/Message folder.  When I click on the Inbox (Windows Messaging) it currently displays Corel 8 Settings for the Profile Name.  I also made an attempt at creating another profile name but I believe it defaults back to the Corel 8 Settings.  How do I link both programs so that I can send and receive faxes?? THANKS IN ADVANCE!!   soundman

Use Microsoft Office 97 instead of Corel8 :-)

Hey soundman...

I don't have Win95 installed here...or Win98 with Windows Messaging or MS fax...(I'm running Outlook 98)...

Go to Control Panels, Mail (or it might say "Mail and Fax")...
when you open that up you will see your "Profile"...click on the button that says "show Profiles"...

You can create a new profile here that has MS Fax added as a service...along with Personal Address Book and Personal Folders etc...

Make sure you tell it at the bottom of the the Profile window to "startup Windows Messaging with the following Profile"...it says something like that...you have to specify the profile to startup Windows Messaging in this panel...

Hope that helps...
