    I have emailed this question to Mustek website several times, but have never
    gotten a reply.

    I am running latest edition of Windows 98
    I have just installed a new old stock Mustek 1200 UB PLUS scanner.

    I am able to send faxes using the on screen panel but I can't receive faxes.

    I can't find any instructions or even any mention of receiving faxes
    anywhere
    in help or instructions. The only fax topic is for sending.

    Is it possible to receive faxes using this scanner and driver disc that came
    with ?

    I don't have any other fax program on my computer.

    Thank you.
    John

    What are both of you talking about?
    Sending a fax means, scan a pice of paper using your MUSTEK 1200
    Scanner and taht is what it is, a scanner!!, and send it away with
    your fax program.
    A scanner is a send only device yes, it is a device that can only
    senbd pictures to the PC.
    Sending a afx does involve a fax program, such as Symantec Winfax
    Starter edition which comes with office 2000 or any othe.
    As long as you don't tell us which fax program you use, we cannot
    help.
    (and if it is a fax program problem, you will have to use another news
    group, because this is the one for scanners :))

    When I installed the scanner I loaded the Mustek scanner installation CD
    that came with the machine. Now I have a scanner icon on my desk top. When I
    click on the icon a panel appears that has five buttons: scan, copy, fax,
    email, and OCR. When I click on the fax button, an image of a phone appears.
    I dial the number that I want to send a fax to and the scanner scans my
    document and sends the fax. I have sent faxes with no problem.
    Nowhere can I find any instructions or help that came with the scanner that
    even mentions receiving faxes. I don't have any other fax program.
