Enable UM-Enabled Users to Receive Faxes on a UM Dial Plan

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can enable all users who are associated with a Unified Messaging (UM) dial plan to receive fax messages in their Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 mailbox. To allow UM-enabled users to receive fax messages in their mailbox, each Unified Messaging server that's associated with the dial plan must be configured to accept incoming fax calls. You must also enable fax messages to be received by users who are associated with the dial plan However, there may be times when these default settings have changed and UM-enabled users can't receive fax messages.

If you prevent fax messages from being received on a dial plan, all users who are associated with the dial plan won't be able to receive fax messages, even if you configure an individual user's properties to allow them to receive fax messages. Enabling or disabling faxing on a UM dial plan takes precedence over the settings for an individual UM-enabled user.
