Adds a button to all your Windows Programs

If you can print, you can fax

All the Fax Machines in the world are your printers with
FaxMail for Windows

FaxMail for Windows will add a button to all your Windows
Programs, giving you access to all the Fax /Modems and Fax/Machines in
the world, making them become your printers. FaxMail attaching itself
to and becomes a part of the actual Microsoft Windows environment,
whereby it appends itself to all system menus thereby adding its
features to all Windows Applications. FaxMail has hundreds of useful
features such as Dynamic View/Edit Cover Page, FaxBook Import, Windows
Dynamic All Class Fax/Modem Driver, and Technical Support. You can
import up to 1000 name and phone numbers into each FaxBook (Phone Book)
at a time from any xBase data base program, and you can have as many
FaxBooks as you want. FaxMail gives you laser quality fax output,
making it a great tool to send an occasional fax or large numbers of
high quality faxes from the background while you work on other tasks.
FaxMail bundles the most useful fax features, and it is fast! The
simplicity of information transfer via FaxMail for Windows is
unequaled. It is a faxmail management system, integrating Fax/Modem
technologies into computer document generation. You can create very
short and/or long fax. No TSR, DOS, or Real-Time-Drivers required.

fax machine or upon receiving a fax, you may want to use Zoom/Edit to
add graphics, text (any font, any size), or use your mouse to sign the

FaxModem Wizard COM-Port/Fax/Modem-tester. FaxModem Wizard not only
tell you what kind of UART is present on each of your four COM-Ports
but what IRQ it is using. Great tool for finding COM-IRQ conflicts.

Microsoft Windows v3.1, Windows for Workgroups v3.11, Windows NT,
Windows 95, and a Modem. Almost all modems are CLASS 1, CLASS 2 or
CLASS 2.0. FaxMail supports all three CLASSES.

Upgrade History:

including USRobotics. Convert to Fax now converts colored images to
varying shads of gray patterns. Upgraded Events Log, Future Send Queue.
Fax Viewer now supports SVGA. New updated help system. The Manual.txt
is included. Convert to Fax driver, now, supports black, white, and all
shades of gray. It supports many paper sizes, PORTRAIT and LANDSCAPE.
You can create very short and/or long fax including Letter 8.5x11,
Legal 8.5x14mm, A4 210x297mm, A5 182x257mm, and is user definable down
to a fraction of an inch. View and move fax from Windows File Manager.
Enhanced Windows Dynamic All Class Fax/Modem-Driver. View Cover Page.
Edit Cover Page. Edit Cover Page Logo. Cover Page Help. Includes the
"FaxModem Wizard" tools that not only tell you what kind of UART is
present on each of your four COM-Ports but what IRQ it is using.
Addition of the FaxMail for Windows Dynamic All Class Fax/Modem-Driver.
No TSR, DOS, or Real-Time Drivers required. Automatically switches from
Fax to Printer Mode. Major upgrade of the Fax/Modem-Drivers. Many
improvements to the FaxBook (Phone-Books) program including Import.
Improved operation with Microsoft Word for Windows and Windows Write.
Full-support for COM1-COM4 on IRQ00-IRQ15.

NOTE: If you choose to use the "FaxMail for Windows Dynamic All Class
Fax/Modem-Driver", a lot of this README will not pertain to you, and
nothing will be put in your AUTOEXEC.BAT.

Because of size constraints we are forced to leave some of the glitter
out of this shareware versions, but it is still VERY MUCH a FULL
working fax program with feature not seen anywhere else. We left off
things like decorative bitmaps, several of the sample cover page logo
files, FaxBook imports and a few other things that will not impede your
use of FaxMail. All of the above mentioned and more will be in your
registered version.

We are working full time on improving and upgrading FaxMail for Windows
based upon the feedback from you and other users. So...before you
install, look at the date on the files inside of the ZIPed file. If
the date is more than a week old, you may want to call and get the
latest version.

You can get FaxMail for Windows from many BBSs and FTP Internet Sites
around the world. FAX_V417.ZIP, where FAX_V417 means version v4.17.

If you have a registered version of FaxMail for Windows you may *NOT*
share the registered version with others.

FaxMail for Windows is shareware. This means you have a chance to test
the performance FaxMail for Windows before committing yourself to
buying it. You have a one month legal trial. After one month you must
pay for FaxMail for Windows or discontinue its use.

Only the unregistered version of FaxMail for Windows may be distributed

While converting printer output to a fax, FaxMail will need to create
and use a temporary file called "TOFAX" and then delete it when
finished. This file will be it the root of the drive FaxMail is
installed on. Be sure this root-directory does not have the maximum
number of files in it.

FaxMail will not be able to if any of the following
are present on the drive that you installed FaxMail on:

*If you have the maximum allowed files in that root directory.
*If you have a directory called TOFAX on the drive.
*If the drive is full.

NOTE: The reason for a small file name in the root directory is that
not all programs with printing capabilities support paths.

If you are currently using another Modem-Program, remember that they
can not run concurrently on the same COM-Port. Disabling a fax program
may be as easy as not loading it or you may have to remove one or more
Typing rem ahead of a line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT or CONFIG.SYS will
disable it. Example:


To disable a line in an *.INI (WIN.INI and SYSTEM.INI) file, place a ;
before the line to be commented-out. Example:


If your old Fax-Program loads from the Windows-StartUp-Group as you
enter Windows, you will have to move it's ICON out of your
Windows-StartUp-Group by grabbing it and dropping it in another Group.

If you load the wrong Fax/Modem-Driver the worst that can be expected
to happen is that the Fax/Modem-Driver might not load or the program
might hang or fail to operate, and perhaps your modem might be left in
Fax mode and require manual resetting(turn it off and back on). Since
information about models that don't work with this program will aid in
correcting unsuspected problems, we would appreciate any information
you can give us about them. Write to the registration address, or send

FaxModem Wizard COM-Port/Fax/Modem-tester, COMTEST.COM. FaxModem
Wizard not only tell you what kind of UART is present on each of your
four COM-Ports but what IRQ it is using. It will generate a text file
called COMTEST.COM that you can read later. This file can be e-mailed
to ElectraSoft for analyses.

Find COM-IRQ conflicts.

How to use COMTEST.COM.
Windows 3.XX
Exit (do not use the Windows "MS-DOS Command Prompt") Windows.

Windows 95
Windows 95 Method 1
Select , , <(*)Restart the computer in MS-DOS

Windows 95 Method 2
Turn on your computer and select <6. Command prompt only>.

Windows 95 Method 3
Put the following four lines in your Windows 95 AUTOEXEC.BAT.

Windows NT
1. Be sure that no software is using any of the four COM-Ports.
2. Select "MS-DOS Command Prompt".
3. Windows NT will warn you that the COM-IRQs can not be opened, and
ask if you want to or . Respond with
to all warning message.


Read "USING COMTEST.COM" first...

(IMPORTANT: Read but don't do this unless you are installing or
reinstalling a Fax/Modem)

COM, Communications-Port (1 - 4).
IRQ, Interrupt-ReQuest (0 - 15).
External Fax/Modem, is placed *ON* a COM-Port (UART).
Internal Fax/Modem, *REPLACES* a COM-Port (UART).

A majority of the people I give tech-support to have a hardware
conflict due to improper Internal Fax/Modem installation!

NOTE: An External Fax/Modem is placed *ON* an existing COM-Port (UART)!

NOTE: An Internal Fax/Modem is a UART is and *REPLACES* a COM-Port

If you are having problems with a Modem, read the above lines until you
comprehend and understand them.

Installing an External Fax/Modem:
Plug one end of the COM cable into your Fax/Modem and the other end
into a vacant COM-Port. You will have to know what COM-Port and what
IRQ you plugged into so you can let the software know during software

Installing an Internal Fax/Modem:
When installing an Internal Fax/Modem, be sure you disable the
COM-Port (located on your IO-Board) you are going to replace. Then;
before installing the Internal Fax/Modem, test, with the opening screen
of COMTEST.COM (comes with FaxMail for Windows and *MUST* be run from
DOS. It will *NOT* work while in Windows.), to be sure the COM-Port
really is disabled, and then, AND ONLY THEN, are you ready to install
the "Internal Fax/Modem". Not doing this properly is the overwhelming
major reason for Modem and other computer problems that to the average
person seem to have no relationship to their modem, but it does! If
you are installing on COM2-IRQ3, the COMTEST.COM opening screen should
look like this BEFORE you install the Fax/Modem.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.
No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.
No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.
No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

Then you are ready to set the jumpers on your Internal Fax/Modem to
COM2-IRQ3 and insert it into a vacant slot; thus replacing the COM2 UART.

You can use DEBUG.EXE to help install Modems, but it is not as actuate
as COMTEST.COM (see Note 5).

If you are reinstalling a Fax/Modem on a different COM-IRQ, keep in
mind that you may have to reinstall or run setup on all the software
that is presently using the Fax/Modem.

If COM1-IRQ4 and COM2-IRQ3 are in use, I would suggest one of the
following configurations:
If we would have found COM2 unused we would have configured like this:
Here is a list of suggested combinations:




FaxMail for Windows will supports COM1 through COM4 on IRQ0 through
IRQ15. But...Before these addresses can be used, your
"COM-Port/Fax/Modem" must first support the configuration and second
you must properly configure said device.

Never skip a COM-Port as the system will go into "conflict-convulsion"
from time to time. To find a vacant IRQ, run something like
SYSONFO.EXE, etc. Here is some information on IRQs in the
IBM-Compatible. They are: IRQ0 - IRQ15. N/A means not normally
available for your Fax/Modem.

IRQ0 {INT 08h, Reserved for 8253 Channel 0 System-Timer-Tick, N/A
IRQ1 {INT 09h, Reserved for Key-Board Attention, N/A
IRQ2 {INT 0Ah, Reserved for Future use, (you can use if not in use)
IRQ3 {INT 0Bh, Reserved for COM2-IRQ3, or COM4-IRQ3 *If not used by COM2
IRQ4 {INT 0Ch, Reserved for COM1-IRQ4, or COM3-IRQ4 *If not used by COM1
IRQ5 {INT 0Dh, Reserved for XT-HardDrive, Can used unless you have an XT
IRQ6 {INT 0Eh, Reserved for Disk Attention, N/A
IRQ7 {INT 0Fh, LPT1, but usually doesn't need IRQ, usually can be used
IRQ8 - IRQ15 {Available in AT and up, but not in XT computers)

The following report was generated by Peter Norton's SYSINFO.EXE on a

IRQ 14 0000:0000 Fixed Disk Unused
IRQ 15 0000:0000 Reserved Unused

Note 1:
As you can see, if IRQ4 is used by COM1, you have to find another IRQ
for COM3. If you have a COM1-IRQ4 and you use COM3 you will need to
use an alternative IRQ. The same goes if you are going to use COM4 and
you have a COM2-IRQ3.

Note 2:
It is best to use COM1-IRQ4 or COM2-IRQ3 for Fax/Modems, as they were
originally and specifically set aside for communications. Experience
has shown me that some Fax/Modems do not preform as well on COM3 and
COM4 using IRQ5, IRQ7 or IRQ2.

Note 3:
By the way, the problem with this and most system tests, such
as MSD.EXE, is that they tell you what is suppose to be or what is
normally on an IRQ. For instances, when I ran this test, as you can
see, it says that "LPT1" is on IRQ7. The fact is I have a Rockwell
class 1,2 Fax/Modem on COM3-IRQ7. When I ran COMTEST.COM I got the
following results:

If your computer has a built-in COM1-IRQ4 and COM2-IRQ3, you can
disable either COM1-IRQ4 or COM2-IRQ3 and then set your Fax/Modem to
that COM-Port and IRQ. This is done be getting out your manuals and
moving the jumpers or contact the company you bought your computer and
Fax/Modem from.

Note 5:
At Segment 0040, Offset 0000 DOS keeps a table of ports starting with
your COM-Ports. The BIOS and DOS assume that you know that you can not
skip a COM-port or reuse an IRQ. If you do, it will raise havoc with
your system. If you skip a COM-Port, your system will compress the
COM-Port table thus making it useless to any program that depend on it.
For instance, if you have a UART on:

COM1, COM2, and COM4

your system will report that you have a UART on:

COM1, COM2, and COM3

Example of how to verify this:

Go to the DOS-Prompt and type:

CD\ {go to the root directory
-D 0040:0000 {the - prompt will appear
{something similar to the following will appear
0040:0000 F8 03 F8 02 E8 03 00 00-78 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........x....

Q {to Quit DEBUG

We are only concerned with the first 8 BYTEs (4 WORDs).
0040:0000 F8 03 F8 02 E8 03 00 00 {as you found them
F8 03,F8 02,E8 03,00 00 {separated

3F8 2F8 3E8 000 {formated to human terms
COM1 COM2 COM3 {No COM4; or was there?
It looks like you have a COM1, COM2 and COM3 🙂

To keep from damaging electronic parts, always turn your computer off
when removing/replacing hardware, and place your hand on the metal
chassis before removing/replacing hardware.


Example of a conflict and how to resolve it

Lets assume you have a mouse on COM1-IRQ4 and a modem on COM4-IRQ3.

You have a hardware conflict. You should never skip a COM-Port as the
system will go into "conflict-convulsion".

Your computer has a COM-Port table at real-mode Segment 0040h, Offset
0000h, 0040:0000. It assumes that you did not skip a port, and if you

did, it will compress it down to where, in this case, your COM4 is
entered into the COM-port table at the location reserved for COM3.
When you go into Windows, Windows looks at the COM-Port table and
thinks you have a COM1, COM2 and COM3. When it goes to access COM3,
bad things happen, because it is not there.

FaxModem Wizard, COMTEST.COM, is included with FaxMail for Windows. It
will tell you what, if anything, is on each of your four COM-Ports and
which IRQ each COM-Port is using, COM?-IRQ?. It will give you a
written report about your Modem.

Exit Windows and Run COMTEST.COM. In this case it will look like this:

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

To Correct this conflict:

Method 1

1. Turn off your computer and remove your modem.

2. Turn on your computer and run FaxModem Wizard (COMTEST.COM). The
UART on COM4 should now be gone as shown in this example.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

3. Turn off your computer and disable COM2. For most computers, this
is done by removing the I/O board and moving or removing the
jumpers so that COM2 is disabled. The "I/O board" is the input
output board that controls the HardDrive, COM-Ports and etc.). If
this is the case with your computer, get out the jumper-sheet that
came with your computer's I/O board, and move the jumpers so that
COM2 is disabled.

4. Run FaxModem Wizard and look for the following results:

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

5. Get out the jumper-sheet that came with your modem and set your
modem to COM2-IRQ3 and insert it into any vacant slot.

6. Run FaxModem Wizard to verify that it looks like this.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

If you have a high performance modem, COM2-IRQ3 will look like this:

FIFO UART (16550AN Chip) or Equivalent detected.
This is a high performance UART with buffering.

Method 2

If COM2-IRQ3 is being used or you are unable to disable COM2, you can
set your modem to COM3-IRQ7 or COM3-IRQ5. If you have a sound card,
it may be using IRQ5. If this is the case, then you will have to use
COM3-IRQ7. Thus FaxModem Wizard will look like this.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

UART (16450 Chip) or Equivalent detected.

No UART/COM/Modem/Serial Port detected.

Windows only:
If you are going to be using FaxMail for Windows in Windows only, you
might try the "FaxMail for Windows Dynamic All Class Fax/Modem-Driver"

DOS and Windows:
If, while installing FaxMail for Windows you find that your Fax/Modem
is not listed, it is possible that one of the selections will work.
For instance, DoveFax Class 1 and Practical Peripherals Class 1 works
with many other class 1 Fax/Modems. The {"Universal, Rockwell, Class
2"} will work with nearly all of the Fax/Modems derived from the
"Rockwell Class 2 Accelerator Kit". Generic Class 2, Zoom Class 2,
ZyXEL Class 2, and Dallas Class 2 Fax/Modem-Drivers are all Class 2
Fax/Modem-Drivers. There are a lot of "Class 2" variations, so, if
your "Class 2" board does not work with one, it may work with another.
"Universal, Hayes, Rockwell, Class 1",
"Universal, Rockwell, Class 1", and the
"Universal, Rockwell, Class 2"

Fax/Modem-Drivers are designed to do the job if all else fails. It
should not always be the first choice because even though it is more
versatile, it may not perform as well as the one recommended by us.
Depending on your computer, another Fax/Modem-Driver may work better
than our recommended one though. Sometimes, depending on your
computer, COM-Port (FIFO(16550) or not), the
"Universal, Hayes, Rockwell, Class 1",
"Universal, Rockwell, Class 1",
- or -
"Universal, Rockwell, Class 2"
may outperform the recommended Fax/Modem-Driver. By The Way, these 2
Fax/Modem-Drivers support FIFO operation.

If your Fax/Modem is not listed, look for an alternate
Fax/Modem-Driver. An Internal Fax/Modem-Driver can be used to drive an
External Fax/Modem, and an External Fax/Modem-Driver can be used to
drive an Internal Fax/Modem. The name is not important. For instance,
the AT&T class 1 will work on many other class 1 Fax/Modems. Choosing
the wrong Fax/Modem-Driver will not harm Anything.

The files in this package are modified to your specifications during
installation and *WILL NOT* work properly if simply copied into your
working directory. You *MUST* use the INSTALL.EXE or configuration
utilities to add or change anything.

Make a directory called FM_TMP, like this:
CD \

UnZIP(PKUNZIP.EXE Version 2.04g or higher) * into FM_TMP
directory, like this:
Copy FaxMail into FM_TMP
and then type:
START and press
Go into MS-Windows 3.1 or above and run the FaxMail for Windows
INSTALL.EXE using the Windows NEW command or Windows RUN command.

After installation, you will have several icons in the FaxMail for
Windows Group and one in your StartUp Group. Please note these icons;
"Read Me" (README), "Q and A" (Q_A), "FaxMail Tutor" (TUTOR31.WRI),
and "FaxMail Help". These should be read before using FaxMail for
Windows. There is also "Contact-Sensitive Help" buttons, throughout
FaxMail for Windows, for your convenience,.

Everything is explained thoroughly in the FaxMail for Windows help
system, which may be called upon from anywhere in FaxMail for Windows.

If you want to use FaxMail for Windows from within any Windows
Application and/or take advantage of *ALL* the power FaxMail for
Windows has, load the "Control" program that you will find in the
FaxMail for Windows Group before loading any other Windows Applications.

After the Control program is loaded, click on the System button (the
small square button at the top left corner of all windows) and choose
SetUp and configure things *YOUR WAY*. I suggest that if you are not
sure of something, leave the defaults set as it came to you. Make a
printout of the defaults in case you change something you do not
understand yet.

If the Fax/Modem-Driver does not load at when you turn on your computer
it could be because FaxMail for Windows installs its Fax/Modem-Driver
at the top of the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, and other drivers can cancel
it out. If this happens to you, move the Fax/Modem-Driver command:
to a spot just before the Windows load command.

"Silent Answer"
Silent Answer requires the support and cooperation of the remote
sending Fax/Modem/Machine with your receiving Fax/Modem. If the
sending Fax/Modem/Machine does not support "Silent Answer" by sending
the "CNG" tone, you will lose that Fax! Please read *all* of this area
before using "Silent Answer". If you still want "Silent Answer", here
is what it does and how to implement it.

Silent answer let one telephone line be used for two purposes;
receiving FAXes with the Fax/Modem, and receiving voice calls with an
answering machine or telephone. When set to this mode, the Fax/Modem
lets your answering machine answer all incoming calls. If it detects
Fax "CNG" tones, it routes the call to FaxMail for Windows. Otherwise,
it just sits silently on the phone line while you or your answering
machine takes the call.

When the phone rings and after the second ring the Fax/Modem will start
monitoring the telephone line. If it detects a Fax tone, it will
receive the Fax. If it does not detects a fax tone, it will do nothing.

Silent Answer hardware installation
When installing the Fax/Modem, DO NOT plug the answering machine into
the telephone jack on the back of the Fax/Modem. Instead, do one of
the following:

a. Plug the answering machine and Fax/Modem into different wall jack
(i.e. jacks in different rooms).

b. Plug the answering machine into a wall jack and the Fax/Modem into
the answering machine.

c. If your answering machine has some kind of phone-jack switching;
use this method. You must locate the two devices on separate
extensions to make silent answer work correctly. This means you
can not plug the answering machine into the Fax/Modem or vise
versa. You can split a single extension with a duplex jack
adapter. Radio Shack commonly carries these, part number 279-357
for $4.49.

Also, if you have an older answering machine that does NOT
automatically turn itself off when it detects that a person or the
Fax/Modem has answered the call, you need a $7.95 adapter from
Radio Shack, part#43-107. This adapter disconnects the answering
machine from the phone line when the call is answered. It goes
between the answering machine and the wall jack.

The device that is picking up the line initially, must answer
after, and not before, the second ring. This means you should
set it to 3 for best results. If no other device picks up the
line by the time the number of rings that FaxMail for Windows
is set to is reached, FaxMail for Windows will answer it and
process a Fax.

To activate Silent Answer
Load the FaxMail for Windows "Control" program and click on the
Button, Button and on the Silent Answer
Button. Set the number of rings until we answer to four and set your
answering-machine to three rings. If the Silent Answer Button
is inactive and gray, your Fax/Modem does not support Silent Answer.

How to enable auto-load (registered version only)

When you boot-up, you have a choice as to whether you want to load the
FaxMail for Windows Fax/Modem-Driver or not. If you plan to always
load the FaxMail for Windows Fax/Modem-Driver, you can place y or Y
behind the Fax/Modem-Driver. Here are two examples:

examples #1 (First line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT)
will ask:
Do you want to load the "FaxMail for Windows" Fax/Modem-Driver? (Y/N) Y

examples #2 (First line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT)
The Y parameter will cause the Fax/Modem-Driver to load without
asking. It will always load without stopping or asking.

BBS and FAX on the same computer

Method 1:
There is an ICON, FAX vs BBS, in the FaxMail for Windows Group for the
purpose of allowing you to control the Fax/Modem mode.

-Before you call a BBS, double-click the ICON and choose:
-Load your BBS-Software and log-onto the BBS.
-After logging-off the BBS and exiting the BBS Software; to resume
FAXing, double-click the ICON again and choose:

Method 2:
Before you call a BBS, go to the DOS Prompt, and type:


Log-onto the BBS.

To resume FAXing, go to the DOS Prompt, and type:


Method 3:
Note: In these example; do not type the comments that appear to the
right of the {.

If you want to use the same computer for Fax and data-modem(BBS), it
may be necessary to Disable the FaxMail for Windows Fax/Modem-Driver
while calling a BBS. To Disable FaxMail for Windows Fax/Modem-Driver
run: BBS-MODE.COM. Use FAX-MODE.COM to Enable the Fax/Modem-Driver
again after you log-off the BBS. Here is an example of a Batch(.BAT)
File that will do it all for you. Lets say that you are using a BBS
program called Telemate, and it's name is TM.EXE. The following Batch
File will Disable the "Fax/Modem-Driver" load "Telemate" and when you
exit the BBS program (Telemate) it will "Enable" the Fax/Modem-Driver
so you can resume FAXing. At the DOS Prompt:

COPY CON T.BAT {Create file(T.BAT)
C:\FaxMail\BBS-MODE.COM {1st line in file(T.BAT)
PAUSE {2nd line in file(T.BAT)
CD\TELEMATE {3rd line in file(T.BAT)
TM.EXE {4th line in file(T.BAT)
C:\FaxMail\FAX-MODE.COM {5th, and Save(T.BAT)

- or -
Using a text editor, create a file called T.BAT with the following 3

C:\FaxMail\BBS-MODE.COM {Set Fax/Modem to Data-Mode(BBS)
PAUSE {Pause to let Fax/Modem catch up(4 sec or more)
CD\TELEMATE {Change Directory to BBS Software
TM.EXE {Load BBS Software
C:\FaxMail\FAX-MODE.COM {Set Fax/Modem to Fax-Mode(FaxMail)

The above example assumes that your FaxMail Directory is FAXMAIL and
your Telemate Directory is TELEMATE.

Now when you want to call a BBS you type:


Method 4:
To remove FaxMail for Windows Fax/Modem-Driver, type "rem " in front of
this line, in your AUTOEXEC.BAT:


....and RE-BOOT.

To restore back to "FaxMail for Windows", reactivate the line, in your


....and RE-BOOT.

In some cases, to reset your modem to data mode, you may have to
manually reset the modem (if it's external) or turn the PC off and
then back on (for internal modems that don't reset any other way).

4. Select OK.

5. You will be asked for the Windows NT floppies or CD-ROM. NT
expects to find FM_PN_NT.DLL on your floppies or CD-ROM, but it
will not be there because this driver only comes with FaxMail for
Windows. The FaxMail installation has already put FM_PN_NT.DLL in
place, so it is not necessary for NT to do so. For this reason you
will get a "noncritical error" when NT can not find FM_PN_NT.DLL on
your floppies or CD-ROM. When you are presented with a noncritical
error, select . NT will ignore coping FM_PN_NT.DLL, but
