Looking for Fax software that will run in Windows 7

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my question.

I am looking for an application that will run on windows 7 that will allow me to do broadcast faxing. We have a medical news letter that we need to broadcast fax out to about 1100 doctors and we do it on bi-weekly basis. Back in the day, WINFAX Pro was our soultion and it worked perfect.

Is there a program out ther (Prefer free our open source) that would allow me to do the same thing WinFax Pro did ?
I have looked but the details are somewhat vague.

Thanks All

PA~

It's not free, but you might look into GFI's Faxmaker 2015. We've used an older version the product for years and it has performed well. The 2015 version is their latest version and it will run on Windows 7.

It is a little tricky to setup, but Winprint HylaFAX on top of HylaFAX will do EXACTLY what you need.  Once it is setup, it is very easy to use.

Winprint HylaFAX works on Windows (including Windows 7) and it is super easy to use.  You can a fax to multiple recipients directly from a print dialog.

The problem is that it must interface with HylaFAX, which requires Linux.  You could run it on an old computer. Hardware is cheap enough.  I concede it is difficult to setup.

Windows Fax and Scan is a free application for Windows 7 that has the same functionality as WINFAX Pro:

Be sure to watch the video in the above link.

Windows Fax and Scan is probably already installed on you computer.

If it is missing, you can install it:
Control Panel  -> Turn Windows features on or off ->Print and Document Settings -> Windows Fax and Scan

Again, not free but only costs $59.95 - https://www.faxtalk.com/products/ftfcp/winfax.htm - it can import your contacts etc from WinFax Pro too.

We do use it in an Exchange environment, but I honestly don't know if that's a limitation or just a feature of it.
