Simple question about windows 2003 server fax capabilities.

Can you route in coming faxes to an email address?

I recently had a winfax pro 10 box die and the software was buggy and pretty much garbage in my opinion. Really the only thing i need my fax server to do is forward all incoming faxes to an email address.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks

Install windows 2003 fax services. you forward to email, print and store a copy of faxes.
It's comes with MS server 2003.

So what would be the best way to have someone monitor the fax server? I can't seem to figure out how to have every incoming fax automatically forwarded to an email address... what am i missing?

Run the setup wizard it should ask you for email address to forward to. I setup a user call faxserver and sent fax there and 1 user logons with name and get all faxes and forward them to the correct people.
