WinFax was the only one.

Re: Act. 6.0 fax software

Thanks Roy.  Which one?  9.0 or 10.0 and which version?  I have seen somewhere that 9 or 10 can work with Act 6.0 but XP and Service packs seems to be a major issue.  I just need to get by for 6months-1yr till I can afford to upgrade the whole office to new everything.

Re: Act. 6.0 fax software

Sorry to be a bit crass,  E-Fax works well also, and you can do it for free if you do low volume amount of faxing.  It installs just like a printer, you send the doc ument there and it will send out in PDF format.  Great for storage.  you also get faxes sent to you as e-mail.

try them out

Re: Act. 6.0 fax software

I use efax now to receive all my faxes, but I don't see how I can send 10 or so at a time from my Act database?  When I try to do a mail merge to fax, fax is shaded out, and in preferences it won't let me pick any fax software, and I don't know how to add any.  And your not being crass at all.

Re: Act. 6.0 fax software

from my understanding, the merge feature is designed for WinFax, not other fax software. 

10.03 is recommended , 10.02 is not compatible, but 10.0 and 10.01 should work also with ACT! 6.0.x

Re: Act. 6.0 fax software

The merge function was built into WinFAX (not ACT!) by Symantec. While there were some other fax providers who created links for ACT!, they really didn't get a look in while Symantec owned both products.

 

I think while WinFAX 9.0 and later supported ACT! 6.0, you need 10.02 for XP support... but this messed the ACT! link, so 10.03 is the recommended version
