This is only a guess, but again if it works with NT WS I am thinking that
the new patch due out soon for other FAX problems may fix this also. I do
not think the $195 call will satisfy you as I have seen no answers to this
An alternative would be to try www.gfifax.com I have used this also but not
with Access. It is possible that the free 2 user version can "get you by"
till we see if the new files help. Possibly you could email the reports to
one of the 2 users for faxing?
Another not so good alternative with 20 users would be MS fax and use modem
sharing on the server.
If you would try this and email me the results:
Do you have email notification enabled? If so disable/stop that and try it.
Sorry I do not have a better answer, but I would like to see it work for you
as expected and will help in anyway that I can but I do not write the code.
