I have used Snappy Fax software and find that it works well.

The write-up confirms Windows 7 and Windows 8 32-bit and 64-bit.

Can Snappy software be setup as an phone answering machine ?

Can Snappy software be setup as an phone answering machine ? <-- As a Fax Answering machine; it does not answer the phone.

Can it have different call in assigned areas for different people.?  <-- For Faxing out, yes. For inbound faxes, I am not sure (never needed that).

One last thing can it have different fax areas, where people can download items from it.?
It just sends faxes. People do not download from it. So no.

To handle faxes, you can use the windows included fax service.

Modems ... to function as an answering machine and fax receiver, it must be capable of those options.

The manufacturer of the modem may include software that covers the functionality possibly including your requirements.

Once upon a time, there is/was a limited version that was bundled with the modem.

Communicate lite seems to be the software that is bundled with Zoom Modems these days that might satisfy your requirement.

Check your modems vendor site to see what they might be offering.
