Even Vista Home Premium doesn't have a fax function built in.

You have to use third-party fax software.

The admin is right. MS deliberately removed the FAX capabitlities of Vista and keeps shoving Vista Home an Home Premium to it's customers. I purchased a new loptop that comes in with Vista Home Premium and can't even change it to XP without buying a new OS (sucks)! If it's any worth, try Snappy Fax ( It works with Vista and free to use for 30days without restriction. I hope it helps.

Fax service

Thanks for the hint. For occasional faxing I now use a fax service that allows sending documents with many different formats as faxes through its web site. It has so far worked very well, even for international faxes.

On the other hand I'm wondering why anybody is still using fax at all. Even fax machines can send documents as email nowadays.
