Winfax discontinued - will anything else work with SAP?

Symantec discontinued Winfax as of 30-JUN-2006.

Is there anything else that will work with SAP?

    Hi William,

    The ALD add-on had fax functionality but I believe that this add-on is no longer going to be provided by SAP and it's future licensing and availability is unknown.

    The only other one I recollect seeing was in an add-on called CrystalWave from Third Wave. This is basically a replacement report writer (for some forms and reports) using the Crystal Engine and offered fax functionality through an internet fax service (the example they gave was efax.com). I've not installed or tested the product so this is not a recommendation, but it might be an option for you.

    Hope this helps,

    Owen

      In order to use SAP messaging to send faxes it looks like Winfax Pro is required; I looked at the code and it's hardcoded into the executable to look for a Winfax printer. They used the Winfax SDK.

      For now the retail boxes can still be found but SAP is definately going to need to do something.

      Actually, eFax might have possibilities from SAP if you can send faxes from email. I'll look into that. Thanks for the reply.
