Receive faxes to PC to review before printing

Guest

I had the bright idea of using Windows Fax in XP to receive all of my faxes
to my PC and then be able to review them and then choose which ones I print.
Since - as a business - I get several junx faxes a day, thi seemed like a
slick solution.

I would still send faxes from my HP fax machine and the way I have it
configured is that I split the phone line to have the same line going to my
modem on my PC and to my fax machine. I have Windows fax enabled to answer
after 2 rings and my HP fax machine enabled to answer after 6 rings. So far
so good, I do have faxes in my fax console display that I can view.

The problem is that only 1 page of a multiple page fax remains after
receiving to the fax console. I can't figure out how to configure so that
more than one page is saved.

Does anyone have an idea how to save mulitple pages so they can be printed.

I receive my faxes in Tiff format and the format itself does not support
multi-page documents. You are receiving your faxes but you can only view the
first page if your are opening the fax using the wrong software. Try opening
your fax with Acrobat Reader and you'll be able to view and print all the
pages of the fax.

Both the Windows Picture and Fax viewer (the default Fax reader) and
Microsoft Office Document Imaging (which replaces the Picture and Fax viewer
when Office is installed) have arrow buttons to allow you to view all pages.
What software are you using to view your Fax files?
