Re: Computer Address Book (Microsoft Fax )

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Microsoft Fax came with my win98 notebook. I tried to use Microsoft Fax and
the worst part about it was that it would not access the address book for
outlook express which meant that I had to enter an all new address book just
for faxes. I called tech support and they concurred with me that I was not
loosing my mind. They did offer a work around but it was not good. Classic
Microsoft snafu. I was very impressed with how well office was integrated
with New Office Document, but this was very annoying for me. I called around
and found that most of my colleagues agreed that Microsoft Fax was a piece
of junk and that they preferred WinFax. In the mean time I am still faxing
the old fashioned way. Maybe I should considering changing over to
