Fax Sending Problem


I have been trying to send a fax for a long time now and it constantly says that the call had not been answered. I have looked over everything i could find on the internet and it does not seem that i am doing anything wrong. I have uninstalled / reinstalled windows fax and scan a couple of times but it seems to do no good. I still get the same message. One thing i noticed when reading the forums is that if i were to uninstall windows fax and scan and i were to reinstall it again , trying to send a fax for the first time, the fax wizard would pop up and lead me through the setup of the fax.

This wizard never comes up after the very first time that i set it up. I dont think i did anything wrong during the fax setup. The only thing that i entered was my area code. When i try to send a fax i hear the dialing tone and the fax tone for quite some time but in the end i get the same problem that i have described.

Fax Stopped Working For Sending And Receiving

This is a new higher end windows 7 intel based i5 computer with 8gb of memory. I have been using the windows fax and scan successfully before. When i went to receive a fax that area was grayed out. I lost all of my history of previous faxes. The name with fax number directory was still there. I manually copied the few listings. I also found i could not send faxes. It seems that in the print directory the print to fax name looks different. But i can't be sure. It now says " fax, microsoft shared fax driver" .

I confirmed that the fax is operational and the wires are connected properly by going online via a dial up network. So, i would think it's in the fax program software.

I tried to remove and reinstall the program, but in the control panel under remove programs i couldn't find it. Also, i'm not sure where to get the program to reinstall. I do have the windows 7 ultimate disk available. I tried going to "tools", then "fax settings". The blue circle circled and the window said, "not responding". Then it stopped. In other words, i cannot access the settings.

Fax And Scan Full Setup

Windows 7 fax and scan. I am still having trouble with windows fax and scan. When i had windows xp i used windows fax console as the fax software. I simply scanned the fax message into a word document and used the fax wizard to send off the fax. I wish to do a similar thing in windows 7 fax and scan but i always end up with attachments which i do not understand.

Is this attachment sequence the new thing - i am certainly not used to it? I am also unable to send any fax though the fax settings are correct. When i try to send a fax reference is made to a fax server. I have set up the program to be used with an external fax modem - a fax server should not be involved. The fax printer present in the printers folder in windows xp is missing in windows 7.
Do i need this ?

Automatically Answer Certain Fax Numbers

I setup my laptop to send/receive faxes just for those times where i might need to send a fax and i don't have time to run anywhere. However at the moment my fax number along with my home phone number are exactly the same, what i would like to do is to have contacts with fax numbers and be able to select which ones to automatically answer if they call. This way i don't have to worry about certain faxes from people and also not have issues if someone calls to talk to me and for it to go to the answering machine.

I know this isn't the ideal situation but i don't want to get a separate line just for 1 or 2 faxes every month.

Fax From Scanner Yields Black Image

Set up: epson 500 perfection photo scanner, win 7 ultimate 64, 8 g ram  intel i860/intel dp 55kg motherboard. I just transferred the scanner from my vista ultimate setup where it worked in all modes.
Under win 7 all modes work except when i use the file-new-fax from scanner mode. The scanner tif image is just a black page. If i use the new scan menu, the tif image is perfect. Under the new scan mode jpg's are fine. I can send a fax by using the new scan menu, and then the forward as fax menu.
I reviewed all settings from my vista setup but cannot find a key to what setup is different.

Dell Photo 966 Aio Can't Fax

I have a dell studio 15 notebook, with windows 7 home premium, 64x. Printer is a dell photo 966aio. The fax option for printer should show up as a 2nd device but it doesn't show up so i can't fax. Dell told me there was something wrong with this printer (although it works with the other 2 dells we have) and i ordered a different model aio. Same thing happened with that- no option for a fax printer - sent printer back after spending 7 hours on the phone with a dell tech. Any suggestions? I've removed and reinstalled the printer several times but no fax option shows up.

Trouble Sending Email

I installed windows 7 and windows mail. The problem is that i can get my mail but haven't been able to send any mail and the messages that are in my sent box were never sent out. I am at a remote location and not on my home isp network. It worked ok on my vista but after the upgrade  nothing can be sent out. I believe i have the correct information in my server because it was working before win7. Is there a number that i can call if i can't get a answer here? Thanks, my frustration level is now red!

Sending Win 7 Overseas

My question is regarding installing windows 7 on computers that are not located in the same country as the country of purchase. So my brother is overseas in romania, and we wish to buy a windows 7: home premium package (for 3 users), and then use 2 of the license codes here in australia on our computers at home, and send the 3rd one for him to use in romania. Please note: my brothers laptop has been purchased from australia but he is now using it in romania. Will there be any issues with doing this?

Mail Stops Sending And Receiving

I have had windows mail on my system for 2 years now and suddenly it's started having problems with sending and receiving mail. This is not 100% of the time, but intermittent - it's been ok for all day for example but now it's failing to connect and is coming up with the error message 0x800cc13. My iphone is thankfully still downloading mail in the interim so i don't think this is a server issue.

I'm using windows vista and this may be coincidence but i'm sure this has only started happening since the latest windows update. Any / all advice would be welcome, i'm using windows mail for work and this is really proving a bugbear.

Mail Not Receiving Or Sending Emails

For the last two days or so, one of my email accounts is not receiving any mail, including test emails we had friends send to us. Furthermore, when trying to send an email to a different user on this computer, the letter was sent, but never went to the email i wanted. It came to the address i sent it from. The only email i've received in a couple of days. Lso, when i hit synchronize and send/receive, i get the error message window, but in the little tab where there would be an error code, it si blank, yet the window says an error has occurred!What gives?

Please help, i've been putting too much money into this computer since april (4 viruses, despite my paranoia and prevention of viruses)

Sending Pics Via Email Live

I have had my computer since feb. It is a gateway, 8gb, 1tb and was working very nicely up until about a month ago when i started having problems sending pics via e-mail/through windows live. I pull up the pic to send and the windows live box comes up but when i go to send a little box comes up, telling me that there are initializing errors with my hotmail acct inbox, outbox, etc. With a red circle by each remark. It also gives me an error id ox80070057 and suggested i go to support live.com to find out what that meant. I did and it said something was stuck in my outbox.

Well, i deleted all but 28 e-mails deleted every pic off my live profile, deleted all cookies and temp files, deleted some pictures, deleted programs that w don't use and/or don't need- oh. This
Is also because in the windows live mailbox that comes up to send the pics, behind the other box i get a message saying check your computer for low disk space and or low memory.

I don't have anything on my computer other than my pics, a few(4)) documents(small) & music. I'm wondering what is causing this and how can i fix it? Could it be all the songs my boyfriend has downloaded? I think it might be. He did delete 2 play-lists, but i just looked and there are like 30 hours worth of music on here and almost 430 songs that i can find. I told him i think those songs are causing the problem, but i could b wrong.

Error - There Was A Problem Sending Command To Program

Error message "there was a problem sending the command to the program" when trying to go to a link that is in an e-mailed message. I have no problem accessing links when in explorer, only when trying to get to a linked site from e-mail. This problem just started today, after the latest updates were installed. And it doesn't happen every time! If i retry the link, it'll go through (usually) after 3or 4 tries.

Problems Sending And Receiving Email Through Webmail

Here are the problems i am having since installing windows 7 and uninstalling/reinstalling ie 7; are they ie problems or something else?1. When i uninstalled ie 7 the hyperlinks in office 2003 wouldn't work. Dell's tech service ($140 and 5 hours work) reinstalled ie 7 (32 bit) and now my hyper-links in office 2003 do work. However:2. I cannot send email to my wife (different computers, same house). I am using windows live.com email.

She is using yahoo.com email. I send her email and she doesn't get it. When i use gmail.com she receives my email fine. But never when i use live.com. 3. When i signed up at the website zencast.com i never received a verification email. I tried using 3 different emails and none worked. 4. Ie 8 keeps coming up with a message asking me to install it. I don't want to because then my hyperlinks in office 2003 won't work again. Ie 7 is 32 bit. Office 2003 is 32 bit.

Ie 8 is 64 bit. My understanding is that office 2003 uses ie 7 for it's hyperlinks. Office 2007 and the upcoming 2010 does not - apparently. So until i get office 2007 or 2010 i have to keep only ie 7, not ie 8. This is my understanding. These are the weird problems i'm having since 1) installing windows 7 and 2) uninstalling ie 7 and reinstalling it.

Ie8 Crashes When Sending Email Via Owa

I have a new lenovo x200 that came with windows 7 professional. When using outlook web access in premium mode via ie8, if i try to send an email, data execution prevention forces ie8 to close. (Basic mode owa works fine, but it's much less user-friendly compared to premium mode. ) I have seen some postings by other people who have had a similar problem, but nothing that others have discussed has worked for me. For example, resetting the ie8 settings hasn't helped. Is there anything i can do to make premium mode owa work on this computer? Premium mode owa worked fine on my old computer that ran xp and ie7.

Saving Scan File As Date And Time Using Win 7 Fax And Scan

A friend has a brother 8840d all-in-one printer. He used to be able to use the scan function on the printer and send the scan in .jpg to the computer running xp with a unique name that had the date and time embedded in the name ie: 111709214200001.jpg.
 
He doesn't have the windows 7 driver to use the scan function as above but the windows 7 fax and scan viewer will let him scan. Question: is there a way to default win7 fax and scan to save a scan with a name similar to above that would have the date incorporated? I now saves it as img01, img02. I am still running xp so i don't have the ability to check.
