    In 2009, persistent problems with Winfax interrupting a mail merge with ACT! The following e-mail was sent to me to correct the problem. It worked until my subscription lapsed. I have resubscribed to your service, and done what was recommended. I have Windows XP, and also done the ‘fixes’ recommended on your site for doing the DLL/page fix.
    Mail merge from Winfax continues to interrupt an ACT mail merge; cannot individually send a fax from ACT to Winfax. WHAT to do? I’ve spent at least a couple of hours looking at the forums and don’t see anything that applies- unless it is a title that I am not familiar with.

    Here is the e-mail:

    This used to work like a charm, now cannot merge from ACT to Winfax
    I would be interested in know what the price would be for one of your techs to fix this.



    What happens when you attempt the merge in ACT ? Does ACT! freeze at the merge dialog progress bar at 5-10 contacts?

    If so, have you tried using a different merge template? We’ve found that sometimes if the above steps you already tried did not solve the problem, the issue usually is related to the template and/or any attachments you are adding to the fax merge. Try a new fax merge using a new template from ACT! using a sample number of contacts and no attachments. Schedule (or hold) the faxes for a future date so they don’t actually send. (You can then delete any faxes held in the outbox easily) If that works, then the problem could be the template you are using. Try re-creating the template and try it again.
