Exchange Servers >> MS FAX using automation

I have successfuly used Automation of Word in the past. It seems that it
should be relatively easy to add code to print to the MS XP FAX driver from
inside of a WORD document. If I set the default print driver to the XP FAX
driver before opening the Word document then a print command should cause it
to try to send a fax. The problem I see is how do I tell the FAX driver the
phone number and other data to use while controlling the Word Document with
automation? Also, how is status handled with the Fax driver? Has anyone
tried this approach? Is there a source for documentation on the XP FAX
object parameters?

Have you tried using Word's SendFax method?
