We are using Exchange 5.5 on NT Server 4.0. Also installed Small Business Server 4.5

We also have installed FaxMaker (show up as faxmaker connector), enabling people to send fax through Exchange/Outlook
When and faxnumber is registered on a contact, the name with (fax recepient) added will show up in the "to"-list.

I wish to import our list of customers into Exchange so people easier can send both email and fax to our customers.

I am able to import the email addresses, but with the customers not having fax but not email, exchange will not accept them and I can't import them.

How can I import contacts that have only fax number, and not email?

Couldn't you put a fake email (the same in all) in everyone's email address where it doesn't have one?  Just let your people know that wxyz@fake.com is a fake email address and they should not send email to that address.

I suppose,

There is only one thing; Outlook doesn't show (by default at least) the address in the "to:" field, only the contact name. They would have to right click and then click "properties" to find out if an address is fake. And most of them will be.

You have an idea on that? Is it possible to change default view perhaps?

Oh,

With both email and fax, the contacts show up twice in the search box. One with "email" added and one with "business fax" added. The "email" would be fake in most cases, but that fax would be correct

I don't believe I have ever seen a method for changing the address book view, although I have seen it asked.  Of course, you could make it a standard to get email addresses also.  Pretty much everyone has one.  Then most would be correct instead of incorrect.
