  • Abstract Since both facsimiles and computer networks are used widely,
    various systems integrating them are developed. One of these
    application areas is the integration of the e-mail and
    facsimiles. The e-mail is the most popular textual delivery
    system on computer networks, and almost installed on each
    computer connecting with Internet. The message exchange between
    the fax/phone and e-mail will enhance their messaging
    capabilities. In the Distributed System Laboratory at the
    National Central University, a new system with the MIME mail
    and fax/phone has been proposed to fill the request for the
    transmission of bi-directional multimedia messages. With the
    help of the Remote Printing Experiment, a user can send
    messages from Internet to the Public Switched Telephone Network
    (PSTN). Furthermore, our system extends their work to make
    users send multimedia messages from PSTN to Internet. In the
    meantime, the Fax-MIME gateway was developed by University of
    Ottawa in Canada. This system also uses the mechanism of the
    Remote Printing Experiment to send messages from Internet to
    PSTN. The gateway has the ability of bidirection MIME messaging
    with the Binary File Transfer (BFT) protocol support. However,
    BFT is not adopted widely by the fax machine manufacturers as
    Group 3, so most fax machines don't support this standard, and
    the message transmission of this gateway is still a single
    direction for most end-users. By contrast, our system offers
    multiple contact points: telephones, Group 3 fax machines and
    computers to transmit messages containing text , image or audio
    to the Internet recipients through PSTN. Finally, we believe
    that our system meets a real user need: bidirection multimedia
    messaging, a simple and user-friendly interface, and a
    transparent and complete addressing scheme.
