    Hi all,

    We're getting nuisance calls in the middle of the night from a fax machine (Twice last night, once the night before) but because we haven't got a fax machine, we don't know who it is (1471 doens't work).

    Is there a utility that makes our computer a fax machine to receive faxes like this ?

    Thanks,

    Richie.

    XP has a built in fax.

    You could register at the "fax preference service" to log your phone number to not recive marketing calls.

    Found out about TPS and FPS this morning and I've registered. I'll take a look into the XP Faxing. Thanks.
