Well Bryan, you've discovered how really sucky Smith Micro software really
is, and always has been. My suggestion is to replace it with almost
anything. I prefer the WinFax package, but Cheyenne BitWare is pretty good
too (WinFax is more efficient though) The last 2 versions of WinFax, (7.5 &
8.0) have a settable processor config (although it is primitive, and has
only a few settings)
