Email to Fax
Email to Fax is a feature that allows you to send an email with attachment to our Internet Fax provider, and have the attached file faxed to your destination. In order to utilize this feature, you must send the email from your Wilson College email address. Any Wilson College Staff or Faculty member can send a fax directly from their computer now.
Basic use of Email to Fax works like this:
1. Address an email to (DestinationFaxNumber)@faxage.com – for example firstname.lastname@example.org if you wanted to send a fax to 717-262-2032.
2. Attach the file or files you want faxed to the recipient. The system will collate multiple attachments in the order you attach them (I.e.: the first document attached will be first when the fax is generated)
3. Send the email
The system will then send a receipt that it got the job, and a further receipt when the job has completed, acknowledging the status of the job (success or failure, and it will list the reason if the job failed, such as busy, etc.).
If the item(s) that you need to fax out are paper documents, you can use one of the many Xerox Copiers on campus to scan the documents to your email, then forward that email by following the steps above.
You can then use the above service to send the scanned PDFs to your intended recipient.
Sample Job Receipt Email:
Your job to 17172622032 has been submitted.
You will receive a status email when the job completes.
Sample Job Status Email:
Your fax job has completed. Details are below:
