I have used WinFax for many years.
What I particularly liked was the super crisp photographic-quality that WinFax offered (300 x 300 dpi).
The possibility to use two modems (low cost fax broadcasting), easy conversion of PDF and word documents, fully integration with ACT! and the phone book, numberous Templates, drag-and-drop faxing, etc.
This was great for fax marketing.
Unfortunately, WinFax does not work with Vista.Please advise if there is any solution to this, such as running WinFax in XP compatible mode, or if there is a new fax driver for Vista??

With ACT! 2008, I can use FaxAdmin 2008 with MS Fax. FaxAdmin 2008 looks neat and is well integrated with ACT! 2008, but again then I only get to use one modem, and can send faxes with a maximum resolution of 200 dpi x 200 dpi (the maximum fax resolution offered by MS Fax?).
So this time, it appears that newer and better, is less and more expensive.
In the case that WinFax is forever gone, are there any alternatives on the market, that can offer me the same features that WinFax 10.03/10.04 PRO offered?
(Still hoping that Symantec will sell the source code of WinFax to some up-and-coming programmers, that can take it further).

I have found a program called ClearFax Pro V2.0 that offer optimum high resolution faxes.
This software is said to offer:
"Send using the ClearFax Printer Driver:
ClearFax is an optional third-party printer driver for faxing. With ClearFax you can produce stunning, high-resolution output - even on the oldest fax machines. The WinFax macro automatically detects and supports the ClearFax printer driver and there is no setting required to use this printer driver. For more information on the ClearFax Printer Driver, visit http://www.clearfax.com
NOTE: If the ClearFax printer driver is installed, the WinFax macro will automatically detect and use this printer driver for all faxes."
I found this information here: www.getfaxing.com/downloads/faxmacromanual.htm
(If would be nice to hear from anyone that does have some experience with this software?).
But again, this is not compatible with Vista.
