Using the Forward TX function

Forward TX is a function that transfers a received fax, Internet fax, or IP address fax to a pre-specified destination.

Faxes can be forwarded to personal E-mail addresses or saved in a shared folder in a computer. Received faxes can be converted to files that can be handled by a computer, which saves printing costs.
