    Not sure if this is something that has already been covered but, we are having a heck of a time configuring our WinFax Server to add the 1+area code when dialing outside numbers. We have a fax phone book that has both local and long distance numbers. In the past we’ve setup some “Location” settings whereby if we needed to change from the local dialing settings to long distance dialing settings we would change the location. This is somewhat troublesome in the sense that we are always needing to switch between the two location settings inorder to send to both local and long distance numbers. Is there any way in WinFax Pro v.10 to set it up so that it can look at the first three numbers and then automatically insert the 1+area code when dial out long distance call based on the first three numbers of the phone number. We were able to do this before by creating a table in our Microsoft “At Work Fax” system with all the prefix numbers. It’s hard to explain but I hope this makes some sense. Any helpful information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You can configure WinFax to use two different dialing methods, one based on the rules provided in Windows and one specific to WinFax settings. They are called “WinFax Dialing” and “Windows dialing” . Which mode are you using in WinFax? You can easily tell by looking at the Send Dialog box where you enter the recipients name and fax number, if the fax number box is split into a small box for area code and a larger box for the fax number, then you are using Windows dialing. If it is a single box, it is WinFax dialing.

    This is an example of WinFax dialing, the Number field entry is a single box.

    You can also determine your WinFax dialing method by looking at Tools, Setup, Dialing & Location. and click the Advanced button.
