The Service pane of the RelayFax Properties dialog is used to designate whether or not you will run RelayFax as a Windows system service. Running RelayFax as a service allows it to start when Windows starts, allows it to operate when no users are logged in to Windows, and provides greater security.

Enable this check box if you wish to run RelayFax as a service. Windows services have a number of configurable options such as Dependencies and Start-up choices.
