Default Viewing Faxes.

G'day to all.

Up until yesterday, I was able to open a fax received in Outlook2K3. Now
when I try to view OR save the TIFF attachment, I get the following error
message:

"Can't create the file FAX.TIFF. Right Click the folder you want to create
the file in ..."



I guess my first question would be Why is this now happening. Nothing has
changed on the PC.

My Second question would be: What folder is Outlook talking about. I've
checked the Temporary Internet Folder, the user TEMP dir, Windows Temp dir
etc.

Does anyone know how to fix this. I've got about 80 faxes sitting there that
I cannot access and I need to.

Thanks

W.

Doesn't sound like a fax problem to me.
Sounds like an Outlook Secure Temp Folder problem.

With Outlook closed, click Start>Run and enter %TEMP% in the Open field.
Click OK. You should see a Windows Explorer window with the folder list in
the left-hand pane. (If you don't see the folder list in Windows XP, click
the Folders button in the toolbar.) Just below the folder named Temp you
should see one called Temporary Internet Files. Click the plus sign to its
left. You should then see a subfolder whose name starts with OLK. Select
this folder so that it's contents display in the right-hand pane. Click
Edit>Select All and then click the Delete button (or press Delete or click
File>Delete). Close the Explorer window and restart Outlook. Your
attachment should open now.

Hi Russ. I've actually done all that yesterday to no avail. I can forward
the msg to another user and all is well, so the problem is definately on my
system. Any other ideas?

One more thing Russ, there is no folder starting with OLK. SO I looked at
another users machiine and saw they had a folder called OLK1 & OLKS so I
added these - still no go.

I should also note that we can open another other attachment, this appears
only to be with TIF files. There is nothing in the registry under
Level1Remove.

I have no idea how you could have no OLK file if you have Outlook installed.
Something else must be wrong here.
What is your file association for TIF files?
How is it that you receive faxes in Outlook 2003? Its Inbox does not
integrate with any modem faxing programs.

But you must have some client side fax software installed to communicate
with SBS Fax.

Thanks again. Actually MS Fax Server saves the incoming fax as a TIF, then
simply sends an smtp message to the user with an attachment.

There is no "Client Side" software other than Outlook. We've actually been
doing this with clients for years.

BTW, as I said previously, this just started failing last Wed/Thur, up til
then it worked for over two years. So this is why I'm confused. So
something in the my Outlook (becuase other uses get emails with the
attachments and can open/save them) has changed to prevent me from opening
TIF files, but all others open and view just fine.

That might explain why there is no OLK file.
Unfortunately, this is an environment with which I am unfamiliar. I'm
surprised you can even get faxes routed to Outlook 2003's Inbox. What
client fax software are you using on these boxes? You may need to
redirect to an SBS group.
I do recall that Office 2003 changes the file association for TIF files
from the Fax viewer to MODI.

Hi Russ. It's an SBS2K environment with Exch2K, Fax Server (SBS 2K) and
Win2K. This all worked fine up until last week.In fact, I added another
user to the FaxGroup and she gets the fax attachments and can open them
just fine.

Don't know why the OLK folder was missing, but I recreated it and the
same issue.
MS Viewer associated withTIF,
Outlook receives faxes from MS Fax Server.

Weve tried everything, even changing file permissions. This is quite
annoying...

Thanks Russ.

Doesn't sound like a fax problem to me.
Sounds like an Outlook Secure Temp Folder problem.

With Outlook closed, click Start>Run and enter %TEMP% in the Open
field.
Click OK. You should see a Windows Explorer window with the folder
list
in
the left-hand pane. (If you don't see the folder list in Windows XP,
click
the Folders button in the toolbar.) Just below the folder named Temp
you
should see one called Temporary Internet Files. Click the plus sign to
its
left. You should then see a subfolder whose name starts with OLK.
Select
this folder so that it's contents display in the right-hand pane.
Click
Edit>Select All and then click the Delete button (or press Delete or
click
File>Delete). Close the Explorer window and restart Outlook. Your
attachment should open now.

G'day to all.

Up until yesterday, I was able to open a fax received in Outlook2K3.
Now
when I try to view OR save the TIFF attachment, I get the following
error
message:

"Can't create the file FAX.TIFF. Right Click the folder you want to
create
the file in ..."

I guess my first question would be Why is this now happening. Nothing
has
changed on the PC.

My Second question would be: What folder is Outlook talking about.
I've
checked the Temporary Internet Folder, the user TEMP dir, Windows
Temp
dir
etc.

Does anyone know how to fix this. I've got about 80 faxes sitting
there
that
I cannot access and I need to.

Thanks

W.

Default Re: Viewing Faxes.

No sir. Nothing is required client side. SBS Fax Server receives the
incoming fax, saves it as a TIF, then sends an email to the recipient.

In any case, the problem is with Outlook 2K3, not the Fax Server, Win2K or
anything else because it works with three other users.

Thanks tho...

Thanks again. Actually MS Fax Server saves the incoming fax as a TIF,
then simply sends an smtp message to the user with an attachment.

There is no "Client Side" software other than Outlook. We've actually
been doing this with clients for years.

BTW, as I said previously, this just started failing last Wed/Thur, up
til then it worked for over two years. So this is why I'm confused. So
something in the my Outlook (becuase other uses get emails with the
attachments and can open/save them) has changed to prevent me from
opening TIF files, but all others open and view just fine.

That might explain why there is no OLK file.
Unfortunately, this is an environment with which I am unfamiliar. I'm
surprised you can even get faxes routed to Outlook 2003's Inbox. What
client fax software are you using on these boxes? You may need to
redirect to an SBS group.
I do recall that Office 2003 changes the file association for TIF files
from the Fax viewer to MODI.

Hi Russ. It's an SBS2K environment with Exch2K, Fax Server (SBS 2K) and
Win2K. This all worked fine up until last week.In fact, I added another
user to the FaxGroup and she gets the fax attachments and can open them
just fine.

By "MSViewer" do you mean Microsoft Office Document Imaging, as in:

By MS Fax Server, do you meanWindows 2003 Server Fax? Is this an

Don't know why the OLK folder was missing, but I recreated it and the
same issue.
MS Viewer associated withTIF,
Outlook receives faxes from MS Fax Server.

Weve tried everything, even changing file permissions. This is quite
annoying...

Thanks Russ.

I have no idea how you could have no OLK file if you have Outlook
installed. Something else must be wrong here.
What is your file association for TIF files?
How is it that you receive faxes in Outlook 2003? Its Inbox does not
integrate with any modem faxing programs.

Unfortunately, you're the only one for whom deleting the contents of OLK
hasn't worked, so I have no idea. Post back when you figure it out. I agree
it sounds like an OL2K3 problem. The Fax Service is no longer in the picture
since you're talking about an email with an attachment now.
Did you ever tell me what the file association for TIF was or what you meant
by MSViewer?
