How to Setup Faxmail

Quick Guide – Sending a fax

Our fax-mail service allows “approved” email addresses to send faxes via our service. Before you can send or receive faxes follow the Quick Guide below to configure approved senders & receivers.

  • Fax type: We support PDF, JPEG, Postscript and Tiff attachment formats (sorry no MS Word docs)
  • Email address: [number]
  • Confirmation: We will send the approved sender a confirmation (see image below). NB – please allow 5-10 minutes for the confirmation.

If you rely on faxes as part of an emergency service or alternately have a business process dependent on a physical fax machine (for sending or receipt) we recommend retaining your legacy PSTN fax service.
