How to Receive a Fax

Auto reception

The machine automatically inquires the mail server for fax reception status at a predetermined interval (default: 15 minutes). If any fax is received successfully, the machine receives and prints the message.

  • You can skip printing and forcibly save the received fax to a User Box of this machine. This prevents fax data from being stolen or lost after being printed, and only the necessary fax(es) will be printed. If necessary, you can convert a fax to a computer-compatible file to manually forward it. For details, refer to Here.

  • Received faxes can be forwarded to a pre-specified destination. They can be converted to computer-compatible files for management. For details, refer to Here.

Manual reception

The user manually inquires the mail server for fax reception status using the Touch Panel.
