  1. Go to your PBX server. (, etc.)
  2. Log in.

  4. Under Tools, click on New to send a new faximage A * indicates a required field. (Note: either a message OR files are required, but sending both is optional)
    • Header: Appears under logo on message page of fax. Pretty unimportant, all told. Usually filled by company name, subject, or classification info.
    • From: Says who the fax is from. Company name or name of sender goes here.
    • To: Says who the fax is for (This is NOT where the recipients fax number goes). Put recipient's or company's name here.
    • Fax number*: Put the recipient's fax number here.

    • Footer: Fine print goes here; you can change what is automatically put here.
    • Preview: Exports a PDF of what your message will look like if sent
    • Send*: Sends message. Be patient, this will take several seconds.

    • Caller ID Name and Caller ID Number let you see info on who sent you the fax
    • Clicking the listing under File Name (Download) will download a TIF file of the fax message. (This is not recommended)
    • Clicking the PDF button under View will download a PDF of the fax message. (This is recommended)
