SBS2003 Fax Server receive options

Currently using a standalone fax machine for incoming faxes on a dedicated inbound phone line. This fax receives orders that our dispatchers need to be aware of immediately. The problem arises with faxes received after hours. We have SBS2003R2 on the server and are looking to use that as a solution. Can the fax server be configured to always print the fax on the local printer, AND forward to an email address? The documentation I've been reading says we can configure the server to send the fax to email, or store in a folder or print to a printer. The word "or" implies that I will be able to select only one of these options. Is that true?

Yes - you can have it print, copy to a folder and email it.  I have an SBS 2008 box that I look after and they get faxes printed and stored to a folder.

I was hoping that would be true. But I've learned to not assume with MS. Thank you for your time!

I'm just checking with a customer with a 2003 SBS box that both work.  It has been a while since it was setup and I think it best to check.  They have 2 methods turned on - will come back once I have a reply.
Everything I read implies only a single method is available too.
