PDF colour attachments with ActiveFax

May 30, 2008

Q:
I heard that it must be possible to send e-mail in color, I downloaded ghostscript software and installed it to the Activefax server (close/restart) but when I sent email is not coloured, only greyscale. What is the procedure in detail ?

A:
I’m sorry, but color format for PDF attachments is currently not supported, since the PDF files are created based on the monochrome fax image. However there are plans to support color format for one of the next versions, so it would also be possible to use color bitmaps with PDFs then.

ActiveFax – sending PDF documents

May 25, 2008

Q:
 Is there a way to email PDF documents directly out of ActiveFax?

A:
To directly process Postscript and PDF files with ActiveFax for outgoing faxes (i.e. through automatic import from the file system or as a print job through LPD/LPR), the add-on software Ghostscript needs to be installed on the fax server. Ghostscript can be downloaded at the following link (file gs###w32.exe, ### = version number) from the Internet:

http://mirror.cs.wisc.edu/pub/mirrors/ghost/AFPL/current/

Please note that the fax server needs to be once stopped and restarted after Ghostscript has been installed.

ActiveFax – clean up wrong fax numbers

May 25, 2008

Q:
How do we “clean up” the wrong fax numbers in the ActiveFax phone book? We correct fax numbers and still, the wrong ones  always come back in the ActiveFax phone book, any ideas?

A:
Do you change the fax number directly in the phone book or do you just change the fax list entry? It is important to change the fax numbers directly in the phone book in that case. If the phone book entries are automatically imported from a database table through ODBC or from a file, you need to take care to also change the fax number in the original data source.
