Once you create a fax, a fax number of the person who is
receiving the fax must be specified. FaxMind allow you to send a
fax to multiple recipients, each recipient is split by the ;
(semicolon) character. In general, you do not have to enter the
recipient fax number one by one, since most of Email
Clients(Including FaxMind Desktop Client) has the ability to choose
Contacts while composing a new email. However, you can also enter
fax number manually. Here is the list of the formats of fax number
that FaxMind supports:
- Local Phone Number: 934-1234, 934 1234 or
This is the format for making local calls, i.e. within the same
- Long Distance Number: (865)934-1234,
865-934-1234, 865-9341234 or 865 934 1234
(separated by space).
This is the format for making long distance calls within
the same country.
- International Phone Number:
+1(865)346-3654, +1-865-8463654, +1 865 8463654 and +1 865 846
In international usage, telephone numbers should always be quoted
with the country code preceded by a "+";
- Extension Phone Number: 934-1234,,,,802 or
The comma causes a 2
seconds pause in dialing, you can add several commas if you want a
longer soft pause. I.e. for the PBX (SPC exchanges) response.
The x character is used to split the fax number
and extension number, and will cause a 6 seconds pause in
The above formats follow the rules of the
Canonical address format for phone numbers which are
easily understood around the world.
The main difference with other Email to Fax software is, that
you can simply add/choose an email address as a recipient fax
number in your email client (Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail)
and never need to remember the recipient's fax number. In this way,
it is necessary for you to add the recipient into the Public
Contact in FaxMind Server:
- On the server computer, double-click the FaxMind
Manager icon on Desktop.
- Enter the Administrator's email address and password, click
- Click Contacts tab, in Public
Contacts group, click Add Contacts...
- Enter the full name, fax number, email address and other
information for the new contact.
- Click OK to save.
