This helps support fax in/ out services through the existing email infrastructure in an organization.
FaxMind Email to Fax Server helps provide email to fax and fax to email services over the existing email services. FaxMind helps fetch email messages regularly from a number of POP3 accessible mailboxes. The emails are then converted automatically into faxable image format and faxed out. Inbound faxes, voices or fax transmission reports are sent via SMTP server. It is possible to use your favorite email client like Microsoft Outlook to send, receive and manage faxes. When sending a fax, when the user enters the email address of an user, the tool will look up the fax no from the public contact book and send the message to the fax number obtained. Macros can be used for special processing. The tool converts attachments into TIFF image formats and sends them out as fax.
This utility is able to work with IVR facility. If a voice-compatible fax modem or fax board is installed and the IVR functionality is enabled, FaxMind will play a welcome voice prompt. The caller then can choose to leave a voice message, or send a fax to be forwarded to user`s email box. The routing can be set. The caller can press a virtual extension phone number to send the fax directly to the user in the organization. FaxMind Printer drivers enable you to print directly from any Windows application. The resulting file could be faxed out. FaxMind Desktop Client lets you customize the fax message, its header (banner text), cover page, scheduled time, choosing fax recipients from the Public Contact list, and even opening the resulting document with Fax Editor (if needed before sending out). This is very good tool.
