A:
You need to take care to add the email address as a merge field to the Word document. Such merge fields are normally displayed as «email» in WinWord.

Creating form letters with ActiveFax in Winword

December 1, 2007

Creating mail-merged documents with ActiveFax from Winword works quite the same way as printing such documents on a normal printer on paper. It is required to add data fields with the recipient information to the document in that case, to tell ActiveFax to which recipients the single documents should be sent to.

You need to use at least the data fields @F211 fax number@ (or @F212 email address@) and @F599@. The data field @F599@ is very important when sending mail-merged documents with Winword, since Winword creates a single huge print job with all recipients included. The data field @F599@ tells ActiveFax to split this huge print job, so you get a single fax job for each recipient. When using multi-page documents, it is important to add the data field @F599@ on the first page of the document.

An example for using data fields with a Winword document can also be found on the fax server in the file ActiveFax\Server\Sample.doc. A complete list with all available data fields can be found in the online help of the fax server.
