This article describes the supported ways through which FaxMaker Online users can receive inbound faxes.
FaxMaker Online users must be assigned a dedicated fax number before they can receive inbound faxes.
By default, received faxes are forwarded to the user via Email. Third-party applications can also be configured to download emails directly from the GFI FaxMaker Online servers via Inbound Web Services API.
Receiving faxes via Email
When a fax is received, FaxMaker Online converts the fax to a configurable format, such as PDF.
Depending on which number the fax was received, FaxMaker Online sends the fax via Email to the receiving email address. The Email contains a fax report and the fax file included as an attachment. For more information refer to User faxing settings.
