For  dew_associates to answer

Here is the question promised for  dew_associates. I will reject any answers from others unless  dew_associates releases this one.

I upgraded (clean install in formatted disk) to Win 95 from 95. Under 95 I could fax a document via modem easily. I tried to do this under 98 and found that there is no fax service available. I can't remember the exact message but seemed to suggest that Microsoft Mail (local) needed to be installed. I added this service but found nothing to do with faxing. I don't mind installing fax software (3rd party) if that is what it takes but as I don't use fax very often it would be better if there was something free to use.

I hope this makes sense.

mtech, thank you! By the way, here's some more info for you, especially if your using Outlook 98 or Outlook Express.

Installing FAX Capabilities in Outlook 98 and Outlook Express 5

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q190/1/33.asp

The versions of MAPI files installed by Outlook 98 Internet Mail
Only (IMO), are different than the ones required by Microsoft Fax. The installation of Microsoft Fax does not overwrite these MAPI files during set up. When Outlook is started and the Microsoft Fax service attempts to start it fails, generating the error. If you need Fax capability with Outlook 98 (IMO), you will need to uninstall Microsoft Fax and then install the Symantec WinFax Starter edition, which is on the Windows 98 CD Rom disk.
