Hello Experts,

I have a customer who would like to start using the efax feature to send faxes to offsite recipients. Currently the SBS 2003 server is setup to receive efaxes and deliver them to one mailbox. Years ago, I set this feature up and it works wonderfully to this day.

My question is, can I set up efaxes on a win7 pro workstation to send through the SBS 2003 server?

Ray,

I appreciate your response. Can you please be more specific as my question asked if I could use my existing configuration to perform efaxing with Win7 Pro through an SBS 2003 server. I have read the links you had sent. Am I to imply that there is a 64/32 bit issue and my existing config will not work?

I have not attempted this at the site and was wanting to get some feedback as to wether my current config will work.

Thank you in advance.

Sorry did not read whole post carefully.  

Looks like answer is yes.  Window 7 looks to fax server different.  Use UNC of \\servername instead of \\servername\fax-share. It does not like the \faxshare part.  Hope this works for you.

Ray,

Thanks for the quick follow up. I will get in tomorrow and try this. If I can correctly remember,
I set this up via Printers and Devices, add a network printer, stop the search, then physically type in the UNC path.
