If using a different Fax Vendors software is an option, then I of 
course must recommend Fax Server/401.  Please note that my company 
Develops & Sells this product, so my opinion is biased.

For more information, our web site is http://www.faxserver401.com

Or you can send an email to jdalverny@cstoneindy.com or call him at 
317-802-0107 Ext 103.

And yes, we have many different interfaces.  Command Driven, contol 
characters in your spool file, or we can "dive in and extract it" with 
no changes to your application (other than directing to an outq).

The actual faxing is done from a separate box, but there are MANY 
advantages to this approach.  If you would like to discuss this, 
please send me a private email.

You might want to consider looking at Quadrant Software's FastFax 
product.
It works on top of Facsimile/400 and makes it easier to use.  It works 
very
similar to the Biscom/EDS solution but much better.  I have gone 
through the
process of replacing a Biscom/EDS system with FastFax.  The FastFax 
system
also utilizes a FAXHEADER record with the codes for faxing and you 
just put
the spool file into a certain outq and away it goes.  Essentially all 
you
have to do to convert is change the fax codes and the outq that you 
override
to.  Also, the FastFax product will work with either the Integrated 
Fax
Adapter or with an external PC or both.  This can be important if you 
start
using the Integrated Fax Adapter and want to add lines and don't have 
any
open slots in the 400.  If you have any other questions feel free to 
e-mail
me privately.
