FIX: Zetafax SMTP Service crashes if sending messages with embedded images



ID: ZTN1984

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax 2012 with SMTP Server


When sending a fax that contains embedded images using the Zetafax SMTP Server the Zetafax SMTP Server will crash quietly. Users will stop receiving faxes and faxes sent from the client will not get processed by the server. In the “Services (Local)” window (Run Services.msc) the “Zetafax SMTP Server” will have “Stopped” in the “Status” column.


This was caused by an issue with the Zetafax SMTP Server when sending faxes.


A hotfix is available from Equisys Technical Support.


This fault is corrected in latest release of Zetafax and the above mentioned hotfix.

Last updated: 4th December  2013 (SB/MW)
