Error Correction Mode, Cellular Fax Support, and Binary File Transfers -- The quality of a fax transmission has relied upon near perfect line conditions to ensure error-free faxes. However, adverse line conditions cause errors in fax data transmission, which typically appear as random blemishes or half-lines on a page. The problem is further magnified when attempting to fax at the higher transmission speeds of 14.4kbps, or when attempting to fax from a cellular device across a cellular network. WinFax LITE 4.0 supports Error Correction Mode (ECM (1) (Enterprise Change Management) See version control and configuration management.

Transmitting binary files enables users to simply double-click on the item and immediately edit it in its native application, such as a Word document or Excel spreadsheet file.
Enhanced Phonebooks -- The previous version of WinFax LITE only provided for the recipient's name, fax number and a field for comments. The phonebook in version 4.0 has been expanded to handle more fields, such as the recipients first and last name, title, company name, full address, notes, telephone and fax numbers. A special field also enables the user to maintain transmission preferences for each recipient to either send a normal fax, to use Delrina's broadcast service or to send the recipient a binary attachment. WinFax LITE 4.0 also allow users to maintain broadcast lists, and enables such lists to be created on-the-fly. In addition, users can maintain settings for up to three different locations.
