Sending Faxes

The SEND FAX feature lets you send a PDF file via the fax server to one or more recipients. The file must be in PDF format. The fax server does not add a cover sheet, so you must create a fax cover sheet within the document if you want to include one. You can create the list of recipients from your personal Contacts directory or by manually entering fax numbers.

To enable fax sending, your system administrator must assign a DID number to the fax server.
