How do I create a fax server with SBS 2008?

Posted on 2011-10-19
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I have a Dell server which has Windows SBS 2008 on it.  Currently it only has DNS and AD roles.  

The server has a modem which has a fax line plugged into it.

I want to set up something where; when someone faxes something to the fax number, the server takes it in, creates a PDF, and then emails out the PDF to whomever as an attachment.

I am open to using either Windows itself or to use some sort of 3rd party software to do it - but I don't have any experience since I have never set anything like this up before.

I would appreciate  a step in the right direction.  Thanks!
