To my knowledge, it's not possible to change the file type of your fax managerin sbs 2003.
Main reeason is that windows has a .tiff viewer inclueded since win98.

OK no problem, thanks for the quick responce, anyone else know a way?
It uses TIFF as TIFF supports multi page images and as as per Daelt Windows has had native support for TIFF for some time :-)

I suppose you could write a transport sync to change the TIFF to a PDF, but this would not be a small job.

As alternatives you could either use a 3rd party fax product on Windows, or use Hylafax on Linux which does have the ability to send as PDF
