Sending multiple Fax simultaneously

Recommended Posts

Hi !

i have a problem sending multiple fax simultaneously with microsoft FAX.

Here is my configuration:

1 Windows 2003 Server with microsoft fax service installed. two 56K modem fax installed on the server. Ip address of the server is

1 Windows XP SP3 professionnal PC with the shared FAX installed.

When i use the FAX wizard to send a fax from the PC, everything is working. When i send 1 FAX to 2 recipients, all is working too and they are sent simultaneously (there is no fax in queue).

So theer is no configuration or hardware problem, as it works all the time.

Now i made an autoit Script, here is the code:

$objFaxDocument = ObjCreate("FAXCOMEX.FaxDocument")
$collFaxRecipients = ObjCreate("FAXCOMEX.FaxRecipients")

$objFaxDocument.Body = "c:\temp\test.rtf"    ; File to FAX
$objFaxDocument.DocumentName = "Mon fax"     ; Document Name
$collFaxRecipients = $objFaxDocument.Recipients
with $collFaxRecipients
.Add ("0466000001", "Recipient 1")  
.Add ("0466000002", "Recipient 2") 
$JobID = $objFaxDocument.Submit("")
$lCount = $collFaxRecipients.Count
For $i = 1 To $lCount

This code is working i have no errors from autoit, but in the FAX console i see everytime an error "unrecoverable error" (translated from french) see below:


And only the 1st FAX is sent.

I searched everywhere over internet and never found anything related to this error problem.

I found something myself, when i add more recipients, lets say 4 like this :

.Add ("0466000001", "Recipient 1")

.Add ("0466000002", "Recipient 2")

.Add ("0466000003", "Recipient 3")

.Add ("0466000004", "Recipient 4")

in this case the FAX for recipient 1 and 4 are sent simultaneously and the FAX for recipient 2 and 3 Fail with the "unrecoverable error".

So what am i missing in my script ?? seems to be something done too fast that the system cannot handle...

Any Help appreciated !!

it's for our sales service, we send and receive orders that way for our small customers who don't have a mail in their company...so actualy sending over 200 fax take a lot of time, if i can take advantage of the 2 fax/modem then it will reduce the time per 2....For the marketing we are using emails.

Just found here something about how to set the outgoing properties with VB and VBS:


Maybe there is something useful here ?


it didn't help...i added this code, it didn't report any errors so i assume the "outgoingqueue" is correctly implemented. But still the same problem...
