I have a client with SBS2003 SP1.  They have been using the MS fax services for a year now with no problems.  They reported today that they can't send any faxes but they are receiving them just fine.  When I go into the Server Manager - Fax (local) properties, the "Disable submission of new outgoing faxes" ans "Disable transmission of outgoing faxes" are both checked.  When I try and uncheck them I get "Unexpected Error" and I am unable the get them unchecked.

Check to make sure that someone didn't delete or rename the "Sent Faxes" archive folder name or permissions.

I had the same issue,
I had changed the fax folders to a separate drive,
Turns out the IDE cable came undone.

So yea, check to see that those folders are accessible.
