SBS Fax problems

I have a SBS server, SBS SP1, Win 2k3 SP2 with a fax problem.   Faxes are frequently partially received and it takes several tries to send a fax.  The normal fax machine works fine on the same phone line.   I keep getting messages like:

"Reception error"      "Unknown fatal error"      "0x0000000c"      5/2/2008 14:49:06      5/2/2008 14:49:52      "U.S. Robotics 56K FAX EXT PnP"      "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\MSFax\Queue\1C8AC8532A8F2.tif"      0      "609-448-xxxx"      " "      ""      " "      0

in the activity logs.  I updated the modem firmware and switched to the USR provided driver.  This did not help.  I disabled compression and reduced the port speed to 9600 baud which also did not help.  The modem is a USR5686E.

Any advice?

I would use a better grade of Modem, like a Multi-Tech series, USR are consumer grade and not reliable enough for this type of operation.  I use Model MT5600ZDX  with no issues.

I installed a Courier V.Everything.  It is more reliable, but I'm not completely sure this is resolved.  If not, it may be a phone line issue.
Could be a phone line issue.  I had an office setup where they had three good lines and one bad, the Telco kept saying nothing wrong and a month later they fessed up that they had a problem.
