The fax machine is busy, will my fax still be sent?

Fax to Email service will make 3 attempts to send the fax approximately every 20 minutes.

After 3 failed attempts it will send you an email stating what has occurred. You will receive a notice within 1 hour, as the system will keep attempting to submit the fax.

Do I pay for undelivered faxes?

Sometimes email takes a little while on the internet, but once your email is received by our server, we will render and deliver it to the recipient, usually within minutes. If anything happens that means the fax hasn't completed or is hasn't successfully delivered, you don't get charged, this means no incomplete or empty faxes. For mass fax broadcasting a fair use rule applies.

How to send a Fax

You can send faxes from any email address. It's as simple as sending an email. All you need to do is send an email to [email protected], replacing FaxNumber with the fax number you are sending to. All emails sent on this address will automatically be faxed to the fax number that you indicate.

For example:

You want to send a fax to +61 02 8211 5111

You need create a new email and send it to [email protected]

You can send to multiple faxes the same way you would send to multiple emails. Only permitted email accounts can send faxes, so be sure to check your fax settings in your Account Manager if you wish to send from multiple emails.

If the fax machine you are sending to doesn't answer or is busy, then our servers will re-try every 10-15 minutes a further 2 times (for a total of 3 attempts). This means a notification of failure may take up to 1 hour to be sent to you.
