Options for faxing from MS Access 2010

Last Modified: 2014-12-15
I've searched EE and there are lots of answers about faxing, but they all seem to be several years old and most of them aren't clear about the minimum requirements, so I'm opening a new question.

I'm looking for a relatively easy and inexpensive way to fax MS Access reports from within Access/VBA through a local fax modem.

The machines will not have MS Exchange installed but do have current version of Outlook.

Client rejected internet service based solution, such as Interfax.

I tried FaxMan but had incompatibilities on the computer and their tech support was not able to resolve them.

So, I'm looking for a different ActiveX recommendation or guidance on how to fax using using Faxcomex without MS Exchange.
