XM Fax Windows Applications/Tools for Faxing
SendFAX is used to compose and send faxes. SendFAX also provides a means of viewing, annotating and reordering the pages of the documents to be faxed. A local phone book for SendFAX is available in option.
Also installed with SendFAX is the "XM Fax" virtual printer. Using that printer from a desktop application locally converts the current document into a TIFF file in order to open it in SendFAX and fax it. Accessed this way, SendFAX may either be displayed with its full interface or with a minimal interface for quick faxing.
Web Fax Composer Virtual Printer
Using that printer from a desktop application locally converts the current document into a TIFF file in order to fax it via the Web Client. The Web Client Compose feature is then launched with the TIFF file included (uploaded) as an attachment.
