Can Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 route faxes to each employee's Exchange mailbox, based on the phone line that received the fax?

I am trying to set up a fax server solution that would allow employees to send and receive faxes from their desktops. Each employee would have their own DID fax number. We currently run SBS 2003, and I'm looking for the 'best' solution for our fax situation.

I have also been looking at Castelle's FaxPress appliance. What are some other good fax servers or other solutions I should be researching? An opensource, Linux solution will also be considered.

If you have multiple fax numbers (i.e.  a dedicated fax number for Sales, one for support, etc)  then the SBS Fax Server in 2008 will allow you to set a separate destination for each separate fax modem.

Otherwise, you can use RightFax, which allows you to capture incoming fax data received through the fax card of the server connected to the PBX and route it to peoples' or groups of peoples' Exchange mailboxes..

Uhm, I did not provide a clear solution:
there is no support for what you want in SBS Shared FAX. So, you'd better not stick with it

Check out GFI FAXmaker.  It's not free, but it's very good and does what you're looking for.
