Network faxing sucks in general. There are zero standards (or
if there are, nobody is following them). So far most of the NT-based
servers are horribly tied up with MAPI/Exchange. (E.g. your clients
must run Outlook in 'corporate' mode, which doesn't support IMAP.
Yes, you read that right! MS reckon that only Exchange is good
enough for corporate use. Not IMAP. Oh - but just so they can say
they support Internet standards - they'll let you use POP3 in
VSI-FAX looks quite good. Only it's pretty expensive. Linux could
really do with affordable fax servers with usable Windows clients.
Until then, it looks like I'll be sticking with an NT solution (if I can
find a decent, affordable non-fscking-MAPI one.)
Anyway, I've got a couple more leads that I'm following up.
