E-Mail Functions and Folder Transmission

This section explains e-mail and folder transmission.

E-Mail Functions

  • Internet Fax Transmission

  • E-mail Transmission

To send a fax by Internet Fax, you must specify an Internet Fax destination.

To send a fax by e-mail, you must specify an E-mail destination.

In both transmission methods, the fax data is sent as a graphics file attached to e-mail. The format of this graphics file depends on the transmission method, as shown in the table below.
