The "To" Field address scheme is critical to the correct configuration of fax server mode.
Note: Not all fax server manufacturers support this configuration. Notice the slight format differences between these manufacturers:
- "/fax=[#]/" < email@example.com
IMPORTANT! Failure to enter the correct format will result in a message that reads, "Invalid Format; To Format must follow the specified format". Other comments:
- The MFP's firmware replaces the [#] parameter with the dialed recipient's fax number.
- The 'To' format determines the e-mail address of the fax server.
- The name after the (@) symbol should be the configured domain name that is unique to the fax server.
