Delivery Receipts via E-mail (Microsoft Fax)

Parent Previous Next

Delivery notification receipts provide users with information about the success or failure of their sent faxes. An e-mail receipt is sent to the predefined e-mail address(es), to confirm whether the fax has been sent correctly. Note that this functionality is completely independent from the similar function, which is used together with Mail to Fax - Microsoft Fax, see Delivery notification to user address option in the Delivery Receipts to user e-mail address (Mail to Fax) - Microsoft Fax chapter of this user manual. The notification to e-mail is sent regardless of the method of creating a fax. The delivery receipt can be sent to one or more e-mail recipients. To, CC and BCC e-mail fields can be used. A copy of the sent fax can be attached to the e-mail message in TIFF, PDF or SFF format.
