Abstract: A system-wide data stream compatibility is provided for a FAX server in an image archiving system, by the concealment of FAX cover sheet and distribution list object handling information, which is uniquely required by the FAX server, in an otherwise unneeded document descriptor field located outside of the data stream boundary, in the distribution service or session header. In addition, the FAX server provides for the storage of multiple cover sheets and addressee distribution lists which are editable. The FAX server can manage multiple transmissions of FAX messages with customized cover sheets, to multiple addressees in the distribution lists.
