Hi All
I have set up a fax server on server2003 all is working well, however i would like all faxes recieved to be forwarded to one email address.
The only way i think i can do this is set up a virtual printer that will pdf the file and send it to an email address.
The only options i have found i can do is store all faxes in deffined folder or print.

Also i have a client connected to this fax server that has a Canon DR-2010C scanner, their fax-scan utility will not recognise this scanner at all. It comes up with an error no scanners atached, however i know it is installed properly because the client is able to scan documents through paperport. its as though the windows scan application is not compatible with the canon scanner.
Thanks

You'll need some additional software to email faxes, this one is highly regarded:

you wanna add your clients to the administrative group? There's a group called "AdministratorS", you can add members to that group.

thanks for the suggestion Jay, however adding users to the Admin group is exactly what I don't want. if all users had Admin access god knows what they will get up to. Remember this is in a server 2003 AD environment
any other suggestions, I was thinking if there where a group for fax operator, similar to print operators. Or maybe , can Make the group manually (access to certain files folders etc,
Thanks again
are you talking about the windows fax client? I thought restricted user was enough for this, have you tried power user?
