    Faxing from Outlook

    To send faxes from Outlook, you have to add the Fax Transport Service as an e-mail account. To add Fax Transport Services in Outlook 2002, follow these steps:

    1. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.

    2. Click Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.

    3. On the Server Type page, click Additional Server Types.

    4. On the next page, Fax Mail Transport is selected. Click Next to finish adding the account.

    (For Outlook 2000, on the Tools menu, click Services, and add Fax Mail Transport there.)
    To send a fax from Outlook, follow these steps:

    1. On the Standard toolbar, click New.

    2. In the blank message form, on the Standard toolbar, click Accounts, and then click Fax Mail Transport.

    3. Enter your message, click Send, and the fax modem will connect and transmit the fax message.

    You can't automatically have incoming faxes transferred to your Outlook Inbox when you're using Windows XP. Received faxes can go only to the inbox of the Fax Console and to another folder, if you specify one. (See the Knowledge Base article, Windows XP-Based Fax Service Does Not Transfer Incoming Faxes to Your Inbox in Outlook 2000 or Outlook 2002, for more information.) However, if you copy incoming faxes to a folder, you can send them as attachments to e-mail messages just as you would any other file.
