Internet Fax Cover Page Fields not AutoPopulating


C

ctc

Searching for Internet Fax in outlook help finds no relevant entries. However
an Internet Fax company has just told me about the internet fax integration
feature of office 2007.

I downloaded and ran an executable from their website that reportedly
modified the registry to work with their service. Now when I click on
internet fax the body of the message looks like a fax cover page with
numerous fields. But after selecting a recipient only 2 of the fields on the
cover page (company name and sender name) are populated. All of the other
fields appear as "Type recipient name here" etc. Shouldn't all of these
fields automatically populate?

One would think. One would also think you would ask the third party vendor
responsible for this support. It is not an Outlook issue with which anyone
here could help you. I would expect each vendor differs greatly in how well
they can pull data from your Contacts Folder.

Yes, I have since received a reply from them that their integration was
written for office 2003 and is hit or miss with 2007. I guess I'll try a
different service.

How would I know that without asking???

What version of outlook are you using? I asked Venali tech support if the
outlook 2007 internet fax service worked with their service including
autopopulating the fax cover page and was told yes. But after signing up,
their support "manager" said that it worked with 2003 but not 2007 and they
have no plans to make it work!? She recommended that I write fax cover sheets
in word and add them as attachments...give me a break whats the fing computer
for? how about a little integration? So thats 2 strikes, both venali and
MyFax won't autopopulate coverpages with outlook 2007. Now what, back to the
fax console!!!

Are you using the internet fax feature or 2007 or are you typing in the
recipients fax (e-mail address removed)?
What fields do you have in your custom cover page?
Do they all autopopulate or do you manually type them for each fax?
Where does your cover page reside, locally as an attachment or on their
server?
Thank you.
