I am having no problems with most of the fax's going through the method of using the faxing through the printer option. I do have one program that does have a problem printing large documents through it. This is why I need to attempt to make the faxing through email work. The information I have aquired through Microsoft does not seem to work. Has anybody used this successfully.

I realize that this question is a bit old, but thought I'd provide the information you are looking for.

If you set up the SBS Fax correctly, AND you join the workstations to the domain correctly (using http://<servername>/connectcomputer) then there is no problem at all sending faxes directly from Outlook.

For documentation about how to set up FAX and to "Send a Fax as E-Mail", please see http://sbsurl.com/fax

If you didn't join the workstations correctly, please follow the steps I've outlined at http://sbsurl.com/rejoin
