Send a Fax

First off, you can convert a document into a fax from any Windows program that can print. What you do is proceed to print the document but before printing, choose the [ElectraSoft Print to Fax] printer as the printer. Be sure FaxMail is running and it will bring up the Send Fax box, shown below.

Or, if you already have a fax converted, you can just bring up the Send Fax box by clicking the [Send Fax] button.

Now that we are in the Send Fax box, you can either type in the recipient's fax number or choose a recipient from the faxbooks by clicking on the [FaxBooks] button. Select whether or not to include the cover page and edit the cover page accordingly (by clicking on the [Edit Cover Page] button.) if you do include the cover page.

Once you are ready to send the fax, click on the [Queue/Send Fax] button. That is it. The fax will then be sent. You can then see the status in the main window.

If the installation successfully detected your modem, you will automatically be ready to receive a fax. By default, while FaxMail is running, it will answer the phone on the 1st incoming ring. To set FaxMail to not answer, simply toggle off the [Ready to Receive Faxes] setting on the main screen, shown below.
