Hi - One of our Windows SBS users cannot receive faxes any more. On his workstation, Windows fax and scan shows that "all accounts are accessible". His group membership includes the fax group. Up until a couple of days ago he was receiving faxes wthout a problem.

I have checked other users machines and they are all receiving faxes. Having check all the other obvious things I have run out of ideas.

Any suggestions?

Disable all 3rd party services on the client machine and test it again.

Start - Run - msconfig - Services Tab - Check Hide All Microsoft Services
 
Then click Disable All.

Restart the machine and test.

I removed the user from the fax admin group in SBS 2011....waited 10 minutes....added the user to fax admin group again and bingo!
