Is it possible to send a fax through windows XP to multiple recipents that I
have in a delimitted file? I am able to fax one at a time. I tried to fax
through a mail merge in Word, but it is trying to access the fax #'s in
Outlook and I do not have this recipent list in outlook. I would like to
just import the list into the fax program, but that doesn't seem to be an
option. I have 3 pages that need to be faxed to 100+ recipients.

Does your PC/Laptop have a modem attached?

What sort of document are you trying to send?

Tell you what... I take it that your PC/Laptop have a modem installed.

First, we need to check if the fax is enabled first.
- Click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes. (If you
see a printer call 'Fax', then you can proceed to the next paragraph. Else
continue...)
- If 'Fax' is not there. Under Printer Tasks (located on the right),click on
"Install a local fax printer." A printer call 'Fax' should be added to the
list.

Next is to fax your document. As an example, I'll use microsoft words but
other applications should work more or less the same.
- Open your document. Click File -> Print. Select 'Fax' in the Printer Name
and click OK. Fax wizard willl open. Click Next>.
- From here, add the list of fax numbers you want to send to. Click Next>
and follow the screen instructions.
From here, XP will send the fax to all the receipents automatically...

Hope all these help.

regards,
Edwin Cheng

I am able to send faxes. It is enabled. I have a modem. I can send a fax
from microsoft word. I can send to 1 recipient or to several. My question
is how do I import a fax list of more than 100 recipients into the fax
wizard? Or if I use a mail merge and choose send to email/fax it wants to
access the fax #'s from Outlook not from the data source in the mail merge.
If neither of those options are possible is it possible any other way?
Thanks for your response.

Hi Lisa,

sorry for answering the wrong question... My English command is not good
too...

First, for the fax list... Is it a data file meant for Address Book? Because
if you can import in to the Address book, your job will be easier...

regards,
Edwin Cheng

The fax list is an export from ACT in a delimited format. I do not want to
import it into my Outlook address book. Is there an address book associated
w/ the fax application in XP? I could not find anything like that. The only
thing I found was if I set it up in Outlook, which I can not do. This is a
one time fax.
