microsoft server 2003 fax manager to route incoming faxes to an exchange public folder

I am having issues configure Windows 2003 Server fax manager to route incoming faxes to an Exchange Public Folder.
I created a Public Folder named "Fax" as a depository for the fax Manager.
After consulting the properties of the new Exchange Public folder (ie fax) the path read simply as "\fax". This path is completely foreign to Microsoft Fax Manager.

Are you able to offer step by step instructions on how to configure Windows Server 2003 Fax manager to route incoming emails to an exchange public folder.

Many thanks

There is only one step... buy GFI Fax Maker.  

What you want to do is done easily with Small Business Server 2003, but not Windows Standard Server 2003.  The Windows Fax manager requires that faxes be routed to an NTFS partition.

However, if you use GFI Fax Maker instead you will essentially be running your fax server within Exchange and can route to a public folder easily.  It's pretty reasonably priced if you have a smaller network... but gets pricier as the amount of users goes up.  There are other similar programs, a list is available here:  http://slipstick.com/addins/services/groupfax.htm.  I'm partial to GFI because I know it works.
