Check this page for an example. Look for:

Hi VSF,

you can try this Component:

TFax for Delphi ( Freeware with Source )
http://commlinx.com.au/tfax.htm

* Support for class 2.0 fax modems

* Support for receiving faxes

* Code to allow better scaling of image with dithering support

About Simonet sample: I sent some e-mails to him... asking some questions.
Epsylon : Have u ever tested his sample?

About TFax: The component is fine, but I could not make it work.
An error message comes up saying that my modem does not support Class 2 Faxes.
Which modem have Class 2 Fax support?
What exactly is a Class 2 Fax? Where can I find more info on this?

Thanks!

Hi VSF,

you must have a Faxmodem Class 2.
Check the specification of your modem

I wrote an application faxing about a year ago. I used Aync Professional from Turbopower Software.
www.turbopower.com
It was extremely easy to use. I the time span of about 1/2 hour I was sending and receiving faxes. Very configurable to. The suite contains a lot of very nice communications components.
Draw back is the price I think $100 or $200 or something like that.

Here in Brazil or currency is called "Real"
and
1 Real = 2 Dollars

So...
Quite expensive!

Could not test the component cause I don't have a Class2 modem!

But I think the points are yours any way!
