Enhancements in this release

Zetafax Exchange connector.

  1. Exchange 2000 connector no longer fails with a logon failure.

The Exchange 2000 connector install now removes all references to the previous connector on upgraded Exchange 5.5 servers, that could possibly cause the newly installed connector the fail with logon error.

The Exchange 5.5 connector install has been modified to install on Exchange 5.5 servers hosted on Primary and Backup domain controllers.

Zetafax SMTP gateway.

  1. Zetafax SMTP gateway no longer deletes inbound faxes when SMTP mail server is down.

The Zetafax SMTP gateway now stores a copy of the fax received when the mail server is down or unreachable. The administrator is then able to forward these faxes stored in the Zetafax SMTP Server\DATA\IN directory once normal communications have been reinstated, where 'Zetafax SMTP Server' is the name of the directory where the Zetafax SMTP software is installed.

Zetafax e-mail gateway.

  1. Zetafax Outlook options have been translated.

The Zetafax Outlook extensions and forms have been translated into French, German, Italian and Spanish. These previously only supported English.

  1. The Zetafax Outlook extensions could cause erroneous form cache errors.

  1. Address book control buttons missing on Polish client.

The Polish version of the Zetafax client has been corrected to include all address book control buttons on the appropriate dialogs.

  1. Save as system file dialog too short on French client.
