Hi ya – I am the publisher of the Microsoft Small Business Specialist Primer title that is used for the 70-282 preparation. I like to post up passages as virtual book readings – so here you go – it’s about FAXING!
And would you believe it, despite all Internet e-mail and scanning capabilities, faxing remains a core business service to this day. The fax module in SBS is a robust one and the best thing about it is that you have so many choices of where to receive the faxes.
Options on Inbound Fax Routing include:
- Route through e-mail-You have the option to route faxes to a single e-mail address or distribution list by simply typing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Store in a folder-Simply browse or type in a shared folder location on the network.
- Store in a document library-This routes the fax to a document library in Windows SharePoint Services (WSS). By default, the document library is located at http://servername/companyweb/%20faxes.

- Print-Print faxes to any network attached printer.
IMPORTANT: A really cool new feature in SBS 2003 is the ability to store faxes in WSS. And because it’s new and groovy, it’s likely to appear on a product-based exam such as 70-282.
