13. Question:  I am sure that I am connected to the Internet and my computer is behind a firewall, but when attempting to send an email message the following messages appear in the log:

6/18/03 11:15:01 AM: Checking connection...
6/18/03 11:15:16 AM: "Use Network" connection failed
6/18/03 11:15:16 AM: Mail NOT sent. Unable to Connect. Check connection setting, Dial-up Networking and/or RAS settings.

Answer:   Fax2000 verifies the connection to the Internet by checking for Domain Name Server (DNS) connectivity (specifically, it looks for an MX record).  Some firewalls block these requests and make it appear to Fax2000 that it cannot reach the DNS server and, therefore, has no connection with which to send mail.  The solution to this is to add an "MxDNS" line using your firewall's (usually your gateway's) IP address to the  fax2000.ini file, usually located at "C:\Program Files\CCR\Fax2000\Fax2000.ini".  For example , if your firewall/gateway is 10.0.0.1 add the MxDNS line to the section called [Mail] as illustrated here (you can use Notepad to edit the Fax2000.ini file):  

.
[Mail]
MxDNS=10.0.0.1
AutoCC=0
Connection=0
.

If you have trouble, your network administrator should be able to interpret the above information.
