SBS2008 w/Microsoft Fax enabled.  This has been working normally until after faxing a scanned document to a remote fax, the server continually sends this fax to the receiving machine. Stopped FAX service as well as Print Spooler; cleared all files in the spooler folder.  However, after restarting the services, the files in the spooler return (fp00001.shd, fp00001.spl) and the server immediately starts sending the fax to the same remote fax.  Removed the modem, restarted. No change. No files in the Windows Fax and Scan queues.

I resolved this by removing all jobs from the C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows NT\MSFax folder.
