We are working full time on improving and upgrading FaxMail for Windows.
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. We release minor versions about once a week
and major versions when appropriate. To get the latest version of
FaxMail for Windows, first try these places. We try to keep the latest
versions at these Sites:

You can get FaxMail for Windows from many BBSs and most FTP Internet
Sites around the world. FAXWIN*.ZIP (FAXWIN30.ZIP) where FAXWIN30
means version 3.00.

There have been reports from people that FaxMail for Windows will not
run at top performance when they have Norton Desktop on their computer.

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
freely, and no fee may be charged for it except a nominal copying fee.
All trademarks contained herein are registered to their respective

If you are currently using another Fax-Program, you will have to disable
or remove it before using FaxMail for Windows as two Fax-Programs can
not share the same Fax/Modem or run concurrently. To disable it may be
as easy as not loading it or you may have to remove one or more lines
ahead of a line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT or CONFIG.SYS will disable it.


To disable a line in an .INI (WIN.INI and SYSTEM.INI) place a ; before
the line to be commented. 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.

Since not all of the brands and models of Fax/Modem on the market have
the same capabilities, and since the developer of FaxMail for Windows
did not have a modem of each and every model available to test
the software with, it is inevitable that some modems will not operate
properly with this software. Models for which there were known
compatibility problems that had not been resolved as of this release
are listed at the end of this file; if you have one of these, you
might want to try it anyway since there is a possibility that yours
might work. 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 e-mail
via Internet to:

[email protected]

or FidoNet to:

Jon Krahmer on 1:106/10000

with details.

This program adds "FaxMail Fax/Modem-Driver" to your WIN.INI file, and it
adds a Fax/Modem-Driver to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file if you chose a DOS
compatible Fax/Modem-Driver. FaxMail for Windows also puts the driver,
"FM_PN_DX.DRV", in your Windows system directory
{ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\FM_PN_DX.DRV }. The DOS real-time Fax/Modem-Driver,
as currently written, does not provide a way to remove itself from memory
but it can be Disabled/Enabled. More details are given below in the
section on HELPFUL HINTS.

(Don't do this unless you are installing or reinstalling a Fax/Modem)

If you are reinstalling a Fax/Modem, keep in mind that you may have to
reinstall all the software now using that Fax/Modem.

COM, Communications-Port (a total of 4).
IRQ, Interrupt-ReQuest (0 - 15).

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 installation.

Internal Fax/Modem:
These instructions assume that the Fax/Modem is not in your computer. If it
is in your computer, remove it now. Do not type any comments that are to
the right of the {.

Go to the DOS-Prompt and type:

CD\ {go to the root directory

We are only concerned with the first 8 BYTEs (4 WORDs).

3F8 2F8 000 000 {formated to human terms

The above tells me that hardware for COM1 and COM2 is installed in the
computer as follows:
COM3, Not installed
COM4, Not installed

If the above scenario fits your situation, 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

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 information on 9 IRQs in the IBM-Compatible. They are:
IRQ0 - IRQ7. 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 {information N/A (available in AT and up)

The following report was generated by Peter Norton's SYSINFO.EXE on
a 486DX-50:
* Hardware Interrupts *
Number Address Name Owner
IRQ 00 FCAC:0043 Timer Output 0 BIOS
IRQ 01 FCAC:0048 Keyboard BIOS
IRQ 02 08AB:0057 [Cascade] DOS System Area
IRQ 03 08AB:006F COM2 DOS System Area
IRQ 05 08AB:009F LPT2 DOS System Area
IRQ 06 08AB:00B7 Floppy Disk DOS System Area
IRQ 07 0070:06F4 LPT1 DOS System Area
IRQ 08 0000:0000 Realtime Clock Unused
IRQ 09 0000:0000 Reserved Unused
IRQ 10 0000:0000 Reserved Unused
IRQ 11 0000:0000 Reserved Unused
IRQ 12 0000:0000 Reserved Unused
IRQ 13 0000:0000 Coprocessor Unused
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 one
of the 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 IRQ2, IRQ7 or IRQ5.

Rockwell, Internal, V.32AC, V1.270, TR14-Jxxx-001 Accelerator-Kit:
COM1-IRQ4 { Class 1 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Worked well
{ Class 2 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Worked well
COM2-IRQ3 { Class 1 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Worked well
{ Class 2 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Worked well
COM3-IRQ2,IRQ5,IRQ7 { Class 1 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Poor, usually failed to send
{ Class 2 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Worked
COM4-IRQ2,IRQ5,IRQ7 { Class 1 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Poor, usually failed to send
{ Class 2 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Worked

GVC, Internal, FM144/144, FM-144HVBIS with built-in FIFO:
COM3-IRQ5 { Class 2 (FM_ROCK1.COM); Works well

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

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. The
"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 TEMP, like this:
CD \

UnZIP(PKUNZIP.EXE Version 2.04g or higher) FAX-V???.ZIP into TEMP
directory, like this:
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.TXT), "Q and A" (Q_A.TXT), "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

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 weather 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:

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.

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 lines:

C:\FaxMail\BBS-MODE.COM {Set Fax/Modem to Data-Mode(BBS)
PAUSE {Pause to let Fax/Modem catch up(4 seconds 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:
