Using the machine's Address Book as the LAN-Fax destination list

Using SmartDeviceMonitor for Admin, you can copy the machine's Address Book data as a CSV file to a computer. This file can then be imported to the LAN-Fax destination list using the LAN-Fax Address Book. This section explains how to use the Address Book for LAN-Fax.

To use this function, you must first download SmartDeviceMonitor for Admin from the manufacturer's Web site and install it on your computer. Contact your local dealer for information on downloading SmartDeviceMonitor for Admin.
