If you don’t see the Area Code Rule button, then you’ve configured WinFax PRO to use “Windows” dialing. Windows dialing rules are defined in Windows XP, and you can check the Phone and Modem options in the Control Panel to define dialing rules in Windows XP.

If you want to use WinFax PRO dialing, you need to click “Advanced” button, and select “WinFax PRO dialing” option. You should then be able to click “Area Code Rules”

The following is more info regarding WinFax dialing and Windows Dialing:

Benefits of WinFax dialing

Credit card setup is much easier than using Windows credit card dialing.
The interface is slightly different when using WinFax dialing. You gain the ability to easily enter and dial an unformatted phone number. For example, in the WinFax Send dialog box, type 14165551234 to send a fax to that number regardless of the area code in the current location. WinFax will dial the number exactly as you enter it.
Ability to use two profiles for two modems.
Can change locations quickly with the Controller.
Capability of 10-digit dialing.
Handling other area codes with the prefix as either Long Distance or as a Local Number.
