I seem to have two problems:

1 - When I fax from my "Send Fax" wizard I choose a person from my Outlook
contacts list ("Use Dialing Rules" box is checked), I can not seem to do
anything with any of the options to get the fax to dial a "1" before it dials
the area code & phone number.

2 - I need ALL faxes to dial a "1" before ALL calls (all calls outside our
area code require we dial a "1" before the area code and even calls within
our own area codes now require
this). In the dialing rules setup it seems I would have to add every single
area code in the US & Canada one-by-one for this to work....is there a way to
make all faxes dial "1" before the ALL area codes?

Thank you for your help,
Erik

I have never had good results trying to use the address book for long
distance. You must have the 1 prefix and it must be +1 but it never works
for me either. Phone numbers entered manually in the dialer will have 1
prefixed but not address book numbers.

Put a plus (+) sign in front of the number 1 for canonical format, see below:
Dialing Rules May Not Be Applied to Tools Such as Fax
