FaxMind Server

Email Macros

When FaxMind processes an email message in preparation for faxing, it examines the mail Subject line to determine where to whom (usually called Recipients) the fax should be sent. Even more, it is possible to place the following special macros within the body of an email message to achieve specific results:

  • Macros must appear at the top of the message body and one macro per line.
  • Macros are case-insensitive.
  • Macros must start with a "[", "(" or "}" (macro keys MUST be next to these starting characters) and end with "]", ")" or "}".
  • Macro keys and values are splitted by "=" (equal) or ":" (colon).
  • Usage for the macro should be:
    [Macro = Value ]
    [Macro =
    Value - Line 1
    Value - Line 2
    Value - Line 3
    If you use a mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android mobile) to send a fax, the following line can be more easily inputted:
    (Macro : Value )
    For example:
