Patrick Kenney via AdminLife

this code works but I am having trouble with making it wait using AutoResetEvent[] or ManualResetEvent any suggestions with a code snippet of what to try?

Microsoft does not appear to have any C# samples of event handling with their fax service api using C# and the c++ and vb6 ones do not translate well to C#.

if I am missing something please advise...

thanks in advance.
