Issues fixed in this release

Zetafax Exchange 2000 Connector.

  1. Exchange 2000 connector no longer adds an additional cover page to released preview faxes.

Released preview faxes had an additional cover page added when “Always Use Default Coversheet and Letterhead” is checked.

  1. Exchange 2000 site default message format settings not used.

Zetafax e-mail gateway.

  1. Accumulation of files in MAILIN folder.

If you are sending a very high volume of faxes, then faxes in the zfax\server\mailin directory were not always deleted. Entries in this directory build up and have to be deleted manually.

  1. Zetafax server stops after Notes server is unavailable.

Brooktrout Intelligent fax devices.

  1. BfvCallWaitForComplete needed a configurable timeout setting.

BfvCallWaitForComplete should get its timeout settings from the PRI line, however, if the line is not configured correctly then the function waits, hanging the device.

  1. Analogue boards in the US do not pick up DTMF tones.

Outlook extensions.

  1. Imaging cannot be used as a viewer on Windows XP.

Imaging is not shipped as part of Windows XP, but we have improved the alternative Zetafax viewer which now provides Fit Width and 1 to 1 display modes, and a print button.

  2. Zetafax Option buttons does not function for English default user on French NT machine.
