Using the Fax Server

Information Technologies maintains a fax server, which can serve as a complete replacement for your fax machine.

Inbound Faxing

Any campus fax number can be redirected to the fax server, which will receive the fax. It converts the fax to a Adobe .PDF file, and then emails the file to you.  The fax server can send this to one or more recipients.  If you would like to have this setup, please submit a request.  Please be sure to include your fax number, as well as the email address(es) that it should be sent to.

Outbound Faxing

You can send an outbound fax from your email via the fax server.  The email body/content will serve as the cover sheet, while any attachments will be subsequent pages of the fax. The address to send email to the fax server is formatted as [phone#]@fax.xavier.  
Note that "@fax.xavier" isn't a typo; "@fax.xavier.edu" will not work. The phone number would be entered the same as how you would dial it from an on-campus phone. Examples for the To: address would be:

Internal Fax: 1234@fax.xavier
Local Fax: 91234567@fax.xavier OR 95131234567@fax.xavier
Long Distance Fax: 91xxx1234567@fax.xavier
International Fax: 9011[country code+number]@fax.xavier

Once a fax has been sent, a confirmation message will be emailed to you as well as placed into the Q:\Fax folder.  You can also check this folder for a .PDF confirmation file.  The confirmation file contains no preview content of the fax, only the fax sending details -  From, To, Date, Time, and Pages.
