Hotfix available for Windows Server 2008 R2 fax crash issue

Hi all,

Windows Server 2008 had a known issue effecting the Fax Service wherein the service would sporadically crash when attempting to route a fax to an email address. This issue was due to a fault with Inetcomm.dll becoming unloaded when it should not have. A hotfix was released some time ago to mitigate this issue, but the same bug still existed in 2008 R2 and only a workaround was available. A new version of the hotfix has now been released that fixes both Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. So, if you use Fax to route to email, please see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article for info on the fix:;EN-US;973640
