You are able to send a fax to a single number or broadcast a fax to a maximum of 50 fax numbers at a time. When sending a single fax you can send a fax with or without a cover page. When sending a fax to a single number simply send an Email to the fax number followed by "@srfax.com" (e.g. 14165551212@srfax.com). If you have set the password as required in the settings for "Sending Faxes," then it is mandatory to enter your password on the subject line so that it can be verified. It is also preferable to send the Email as a "Plain Text" Email and not HTML to ensure maximum compatibility.



NOTE for Email format:
If you send a message in PLAIN TEXT then the body of the Email will be placed into the body of the cover page. If you send a message in HTML only then the body of the Email will be reproduced on a separate page to the cover page and will be treated as an attachment. Finally, if you send a message in PLAIN TEXT and in HTML then the HTML portion will be ignored and the Email will be considered as PLAIN TEXT.



Sending a Fax without a Cover Page:

To send a fax without cover page fields, enter the fax number followed by "@srfax.com" in the "To:" address field. Note that you will have to attach a file to be faxed and remember to place your password in the subject line as shown below.

Example:


A. Send a fax to 1-413-283-8709 without cover page fields.


14132838709@srfax.com




SRFax will only accept Email messages destined for outgoing faxes from valid SRFax users. The from field of the Email message must match an Email address specified as an authorized user in your settings for Sending Faxes.



The message body will be ignored when sending a fax without a cover page.


To check on the status of the fax, go to the Faxes Outbox folder. An Email with the final status of the fax will be sent to the Email addresses entered in the settings for Sending Faxes.


Sending a Fax with a Cover Page:

If a name is assigned to the Email address you are sending to (ie. If a name is allocated to a fax number the Email address will be displayed as follows "Joe Black <2165551212@srfax.com>"), then the system will automatically place that name in the "To:" field, the subject line of the Email will automatically be placed in the "Subject" field of the cover page, and the body of the Email will be placed in the "Comments" of the cover page.


To override the default settings you can use the following parameters to send a fax with a cover page which will populate the selected cover page:


To=NameOfPerson
Co=CompanyName
FR=From Name ( or From=From Name)
CP=B,S,C,P,Blank or N (Basic, Standard, Company, Personal, Blank Page or Force No Cover Page)
AC=Account or Billing Code
Retries=Number of times we are to retry sending the fax - 0 - 6 times (default is 6)
Pass=YourPassword
cpl=fr To use French titles on cover page
Sub=SubjectOfYourFax



The cover page parameter fields MUST be separated by a forward slash /. Specify only the parameters you need.


Examples:


A. Send a fax to 1-413-283-8709 with the subject field of the cover page and no password filled.


Send Email To: 14132838709@srfax.com
Subject Line: Information as requested
