FaxMind Server

Sending a fax via an Email Client

Most of time, it is more suitable and effective for sending a fax via your familiar email client application, i.e. Microsoft Outlook. This is done by composing your email message and sending to an email account that you know FaxMind Server is monitoring. For example, if FaxMind Server is collecting all the email messages sent to faxservice@yourcompany.com then sending your message to that address will get it faxed. Some special considerations must be observed in order to use this method of faxing.

When you compose your email message you can specify just a fax number or an email address on the Subject line like this:
(203) 2250505; daniel.wollman@ctmemory.com

You can also specify the recipient's name and the fax number or email address:
Daniel Wollman <(203) 2250505>; Daniel Wollman <daniel.wollman@ctmemory.com>; 'Daniel Wollman' (daniel.wollman@ctmemory.com)

FaxMind supports many special macros for you to customize your fax message, i.e. SUBJECT, COVERPAGE, HEADER, MEMO, PRIORITY ect., more details see the Email Macros section in the User's Manual.

  • Recipients are separated by a semicolon ( " ; " ). Recipient names can not have quotes (" ' "), but fax numbers or email addresss must be encapsulated within " < "and " > " characters. The round brackets can be used in Email Address only.
  • If you would like to use an email address as a recipient fax number, be sure the contact has already been added in the Public Contacts list of FaxMind Server.
