Fax board with Windows Server

Hi all,

We're thinking about buying an internal fax board to use with Windows Fax Server.

Mainpine has been recommended to us, but they are super expensive. Ultimately, we don't mind paying for quality and reliability, but is Mainpine really the best bang for our buck?

Thanks in advance.

If you have decided you need a true fax board, MainPine and Brooktrout are really the only games left in town. Internet Faxing has killed off almost all the reputable/reliable smaller players. And yes, they are expensive.

Thank you.

Should we be looking at internet faxing as well? Any that you like over others?

I don't know if you should be looking at internet faxing. Heck, for all I know, you may not even need to be looking at fax boards. They may be overkill for what you need. Or they may not be enough and you should be looking at T-1 trunk terminations. I know *nothing* about your network or your desired goals and budget.
