If you are looking for an In House solution I would definitly suggest using one of the FaxPress products. This is also what we are currently using (FaxPress 5000) and looking to upgrade to FaxPress Premiere. FaxPress Premiere is an all-in-one solution (Windows OS and Faxing in one machine) low maintenance fees (yearly).

Has great monitoring tools, along with archiving options, tracking, send faxes via email clients etc. I would definitly suggest this if you are looking for something "In House".  Take a look at the link below for more details on the product.

If you are looking for a hosted solution I would suggest myfax.com.

Hope this helps~!

If you're looking for a real low budget option, SBS 2003 can do some of this itself.  It's not perfect and is a bit limited compared to software like the one above but I have a few clients using it and they get on with it pretty well.  Just attach a compatible fax modem to the server, configure it and the clients on the network can use it as another shared printer - just print the document you want to fax and select the SBS server's shared fax as the printer.  

Incoming faxes can be routed to a document store, email address or Sharepoint page.  If you go with this, I would advise a good quality serial modem as a lot of the more modern cheap USB ones seem to have trouble keeping the connection open during transmits & receives.
