After installing The Remote Desktop Hosting Service role on Windows 2008 R2

the Outlook 20007 Fax Mail Transport no longer works. I get an error message

saying "The Microsoft Fax transport failed to deliver the message to the

recipient. The message does not contain any content" whenever I try to fax

something with an attachment.

I can use the Windows Fax & Scanner Wizard and Fax Printer to send faxes but

faxing through Outlook no longer works.. If I uninstall the RDHS role

Outlook can fax again..

Fax Mail Transport normally converts the attachment to a .tiff file by

running a command in the printto key associated w/ the file extension and

then directs it to the fax printer however with RDHS installed the

application is never launched.. No data is sent to the fax printer, I suspect

thats why I get "The message does not contain any content"

To Replicate:

Install RDHS on Windows 2008 R2

Create email addressed to a Fax Contact

Attach a document (.txt file for example)

No Subject, No Body.. Hit Send.

Thoughts? Could this be permissions or restrictions related? I'm logged in

as the Administrator and tried "Run as Administrator" Same deal..
