    Hi,

    I acquired and installed Winfax specifically with the intention of forwarding incoming faxes to an email account. This function works fine – I am receiving the faxes as emails with FXM attachments.

    I downloaded and installed the miniviewer on the PC’s receiving the emails to view the FXM attachments.

    My problem is that I cannot easily view the FXM attachments.
    To view them I need to:
    (a) Save the attachment to a folder
    (b) open the miniviewer executable
    © specifically open the file “filename.fxm” in that directory.

    Cumbersome to say the least …..

    Question: Why is it not possible to double click on the attachment to view it in miniviewer? The miniviewer program opens when I do this (ie. the files are correctly associated), but the attached file does not automatically open in the viewer.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this not supported ….?

    Many thanks,
    Ralf.

    What email application are you using to receive the fxm image file?

    Hi,

    I’ve used Outlook 2003 and Outlook Express.
    I’ve also downloaded the demo version of Smart FaxSee and here the viewing works fine.
    I’m loathed however to buy a viewer that costs more than WinFax Pro itself ……

    Really appreciate the help,
    Ralf.

    which miniviewer file did you download?

    the miniview.exe (75k) file, or the wfqview.exe (800k install) file?

    was WinFax installed on these PC’s previously?

    Hi,

    I was using miniview.exe (this was the utility listed on the Symantec site).

    I just searched for wfxqview.exe and have found and installed this version.

    Now it all works just like I wanted/ intended it to!

    Thanks very much for the help, it’s truly appreciated.

    Cheers
    Ralf.

    Glad to hear that worked. I’ve added links to both files in the WinFax Files area
