I hate to ask this because it sounds like you've done everything correctly,

When you log into the server, you're probably accessing the Administrator's

As you probably know, it's not advised to install Outlook on an Exchange
server, or to use the server as a workstation. If you don't really need to
send faxes from the server, it would probably be best to do so only from the
