FAX & e-mail from SCO UNIX

I'm working on a project that I've been assigned to research ways of sending information via FAX or e-mail through our UNIX (SCO V/386 Release 3.2) system.

My question is, does anyone know if SCO UNIX comes with any pre-installed FAX or internet e-mail options?  Or, does anybody know of any software packages that would send FAX or SECURE e-mail?

Also, I'm working on converting a standard ASCII text file to an order type format to send to a client of ours (via FAX or e-mail).  If anyone has any suggestions on how to do this, I would really appreciate it.  I do have FoxPro available to me, by the way, and I think that may be able to do what I want it to.  =-)

Thanks all!

For the faxing  there is a software package called ' vsi-fax '.  This is a very good software package.  It comes with a lot of options.

For the email,  I believe that SCO does come with that setup, however some of the people I know use Netscape's internet software for Unix to do this.

Hmmm...  I found out about VSI-FAX on my own yesterday...  didn't really learn anything about it, just glanced at it.  Do you know if it will do what I'm looking at doing?  Also, would you happen to know how to format the ASCII file into a order (report style) or any software packages that would help me do this??  Would FoxPro help me do this??

Please let me know... thank you.

Numerous fax solutions are commercially available for SCO. You can find out which one works for you by visiting http://wdb1.sco.com/sdir_web/owa/scodir_search and using "fax" as a search criteria. As to mail, you have sendmail loaded and ready to run so what is the problem?

You didn't give me much more information than kellyjj commented on, but I'll give you the points because it's the best (and only) answer I've got so far.  The search engine should help me a bit too.  Thanks.
