fax to phone number plus extension


B

beppe005

I have to send faxes via computer, I use winxp, to sume numbers where you
have to listen a voice and then digit an extension.
I mean, if I were to use a "normal" fax machine, I dial the number and then
a voice says for faxes digit "52", for voice message digit "53".
Is there a way to send faxes to those numbers?
I tried to "join" the phone number to the fax extension number but it didn't
work.

Someone can help me?
Thank you in advance.

Not an Outlook problem - suggest you post to a Windows XP group for hardware since this option would be a part of your modem software or a third party program. You can also try Windows Fax group(s).

Thank you for your reply. I thought there was a special software or way to
input the fax number.

You can do a manual send by connecting a phone to the "Phone" jack on the
modem (so you have manual voice access to the telephone line) and setting
your modem to NOT wait for a dial tone (on Windows XP, 'Control Panel|Phone
and Modem Options|Modems|Properties|Modem' uncheck the "Wait for dial tone
before dialing" checkbox). You call the manual, operator controlled fax
machine number with the telephone. You have your fax ready to send with a 1
or 2 digit FALSE phone number. You then tell the Fax Machine operator to
press his "Start" button as soon as he hears your short, false phone number
finish dialing. Your modem should "blind dial" the false number, the two
modems should begin their negotiation sequence, and finish the transmission.

This method is very similar to what you'd do with two dedicated Fax
Machines.
