Another Rave Review of Faximum PLUS Release 2
The praise for Faximum PLUS Release 2 continues!
Last year Faximum PLUS was reviewed by UNIXWORLD magazine and
chosen as the best Fax for UNIX package of those reviewed. Earlier
this year Guru Magazine called Faximum "most complete and comprehensive"
and stated "This great product is well worth the investment."

the system of choice":
"The cover sheet capabilities are the best we have

fax support for PostScript, PCL-4 (LaserJet Series II), and PCL-5
(LaserJet Series III) languages. With these options installed,
few applications can't use Faximum directly. Each emulator comes
with a good selection of fonts and can handle soft fonts too.

formats, which included graphics, were handled transparently.
We could send practically anything through the Faximum system...
Faximum is the only package tested that provided PCL-5 emulation
and could handle some of our CorelDraw! output. The software is
easy to work with, and even easier to manage. We were very impressed
with Faximum....for non-X systems running recent applications
that support the LaserJet Series III, Faximum is the system of
All tested programs had good documentation, especially Faximum...which
Faximum offers the best emulation capabilities, and it will handle
everything you can throw at it...we like Faximum for straight
