Faxing is usually done either through sending a document to faxing
software (OS and hardware dependent) or by sending output directly to
the fax modem thereby emulating the fax software. Again, depends on
hardware.

So, in general, you could do this. In practice, based on the amount of
specific information you gave on your OS and hardware, I'd say "it
depends".

You need to look into an e-mail-to-fax solution.
You have several options:

1 - Look online for services that allow you to send an e-mail to an
address... this service will take the attachment or text from your e-mail
and fax it to the fax # you input into the subject of the e-mail.

2 - Look for software you can install on one of your servers. This software
is called Fax Server Software.
It will sit and wait for computers or applications to print to it's printer,
which is the fax imaging printer. This server then dials out and faxes to
the desired location.

#1 is easier for you and probably will cost less in the long run (e.g. long
distance phone charges).
#2 allows you more control, but the online services are so good now that you
should not have an issue.

Considering you are using outlook express, chances are you have access to a
Win2003 server. You can access the faxserver methods (sending, queueing,
deleting etc) through COM.

Hello

You have to use an external fax application to send faxes from PHP.
Winfax,ActiveFax, FaxCarrier etc.

Winfax and others designed for general purposes. It is diffucult to integrate WinFax to your application.

I recomment you the FaxCarrier. FaxCarrier is a specific tool to send faxes from other applications. This application designed for only this purpose.
For detailed information please visit the folowing link.

You can easyly send faxes from PHP using FaxCarrier.
