sending faxes from outlook


P

peter hall

I have a program that sends faxes automatically, it was originally set up to
send using windows messaging and microsoft fax in windows 98 and
millenium,aand has been very reliable. I am trying to update it to run on XP
and possibly 2000 etc. I have been able to get it to work in XP, using
outlook (office XP) and fax console, Problem is, between outlook and fax
console it brings up many dialogs to say a program is trying to access email
addresses stored in outlook, with timed override ( the program doesn't use
outlook addresses at all) and then aprogram is trying to automatically send
email....... for each fax. Having to click all these dialogs seems to
defeat the purpose of sending automically. Is thare anyway to overcome or
bypass all these dialogs?

Thank you for any assistance

You would want to post a query like this in one of the programming groups.

thanks i have already tried that, the code for sending the faxes has been
working great for a few years, the difference is the way outlook sends to
the fax console, and seems to be an outlook problem

thanx, peter hall

Indeed it is. It's the well documented email security patch. I was talking
about the outlook.programming groups. There are lots of folks there who can
instruct you on how to use Outlook Redemption to get around it.

Alternatively you can also use Fax Extended COM Apis to send fax, you can
refer those APIs at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/fax/faxportal_9nol.asp. In your
case the only limitation could be ease integeration with Outlook Address
book
