SBS 2003 Shared Fax Services - No inbound faxes???

We have not received any inbound faxes through our SBS2003 shared fax service for a number of weeks now. Some, but not all, outband faxes are going through. However NO inbound faxes are being recieved .

These are the latest inbound errors in the event logs:

The actions I have taken so far are:
1) Checked all the information input within the fax services is correct (devices/incoming routing/outgoing routing etc..)
2) Uninstalled the fax modem and reinstalled it.
3) Tried an alternative brand new modem.
4) Removed Outlook 2003 from the SBS box (I know it shouldn't have been there but it was!)
5) Uninstalled the Microsoft Shared Fax Service and reinstalled it.

But none of these things have worked and I am reluctant to proceed further as I do not want to delete any of the inbox/sent items in the fax history. Any prompt assistance in resolving this would be greatly appreciated.

Well since applying all the updates the server has been randomly rebooting every 20-30mins and generating hardware errors (Event ID 1076, Reason Code 0x805000f) so I'm now focused on sorting that out. Typical......you try to fix one thing and something else goes wrong!!

Your help is appreciated though so thanks. Soon as I've sorted the above I'll be back on this topic.
