I would like to configure my SBS 2003 server to answer faxes but not voice calls.  I have enabled Adaptive Answering, but my understanding is that this only distinguishes between Fax calls & Data (RAS) calls.  Does anyone know if I can configure the fax & modem to ignore incoming voice calls?

Depends on what modem you have. You'll have to find out on your modems website or support.
Most class 2 modems do this automatically.

I know my modem supports Adaptive Answering, but the SBS setting for Adaptive Answering only mentions Fax or RAS.  I have ticked the Adaptive Answering checkbox in the Fax settings, but nothing has changed (calls still answered as incomming faxes). Is there another setting I can change somewhere?

Not that I am aware of. In SBS you would have a dedicated fax line.
Maybe other experts would know?

Your modem may support Adaptive Answering, but SBS doesn't.  Sorry.
