Integration for Faxing via MFPs

Administrator -

Introduction

Multi-Function Printers/Devices (MFP/MFD) are fax/scanner/printer/copier machines that can be integrated into your local area network thanks to their built-in LAN access. They can be integrated with your Fax Service in two main ways:

Scan to Email/T.37

Any MFP that has the ability to send through the Internet an email with a scanned document as attachment can fax through your Fax Service.

The To Field

When composing the email from the device, the user will only need to enter in the To field the following instead of a regular email address: fax_number@domain, where:
  • fax_number should be formatted according to the international format (E.164);
  • domain depends on the region of your enterprise account : xmedius.com for North America, or xmedius.eu for Europe.
Note: Some MFPs are T.37 compliant and allow the administrator to pre-configure the domain of the Fax Service. Users will then simply need to enter a fax number as destination.
Some examples of fax addressing:
  • +15551234567@xmedius.com (from NA enterprise account to NA destination)
  • +33141234567@xmedius.com (from NA enterprise account to Europe destination)
  • +33141234567@xmedius.eu (from Europe enterprise account to Europe destination)
  • +15551234567@xmedius.eu (from Europe enterprise account to NA destination)

The From Field

To ensure that the email will be eventually sent as a fax, the sender (From field of the email) must be a User of your Enterprise Account.
Important: You must ensure that the From field will always be filled (either manually, or automatically by MFP login) with the appropriate email address – corresponding the user who is actually sending the email.

MFP Apps/Connectors

Several apps/connectors are also available to further facilitate faxing with MFPs: they provide a dedicated user interface that enables faxing using functionalities inherited from the Fax Service (selecting a cover sheet, adding recipient info, selecting and saving phone book contacts, changing sender/fax/scan options...).
