This article provides the recommended page format and size for sending fax-friendly documents.
By sending faxes in the same manner as sending an email attachment, the document remains in an electronic format and the handling of a printed document is avoided. FaxMaker Online supports several file formats which are listed in Attachments Types Supported by GFI FaxMaker Online Client.
Senders should also comply with the following recommendations for sending Fax-Friendly documents which guarantees that documents are formatted in a manner conducive to fax transmission:
- Documents should be black & white. A color document, or a document created with grayscale, or shading will appear pixelated when transmitted.
- Use standard page format sizes e.g. Letter or A4 for the attachments
- If scanning a document to fax, choose the “black & white” option, rather than “photo-quality” to ensure the best legibility.
Refer to Sending Faxes From Your Email Using FaxMaker Online for the limits that each outbound fax event must adhere to.
