    Only with Business or Ultimate, I don't believe the home versions have it,
    only the more expensive ones.

    Is there a Fax software program that works well with Vista?

    Hi

    This is a bit of a ****** nuisance to say the least!

    Whereas FAX could be dealt with by my old PC (using Win XP Home), it can't
    by my new one (using Win VISTA Home Premium). I had even bought a modem (as
    an extra for the new PC) - never imagining that Microsoft would effectively
    withdraw the FAX facility.

    If anyone could recommend some simple software (maybe a 'freebie') I would
    be very grateful.

    Here's hoping ....

    Cheers
    John

    I haven't used it myself, but SnappyFax ($30 US at
    http://www.snappysoftware.com/snappyfax/) is often recommended.

    Personally, I think most people would be better off buying an
    inexpensive stand-alone fax machine. I got mine on sale for $20, and
    it works fine.
