Prevent UM-Enabled Users from Receiving Faxes on a UM Dial Plan

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

You can prevent UM-enabled users who are associated with a Unified Messaging (UM) dial plan from receiving fax messages. By default, users who are enabled for Unified Messaging and are associated with a UM dial plan can receive fax messages. However, there may be times when you want to prevent users who are associated with a specific UM dial plan from receiving faxes.

You can prevent UM-enabled users from receiving faxes by configuring the UM dial plan, the UM mailbox policy, or by configuring the UM-enabled user's mailbox. If you disable incoming fax message delivery on a UM dial plan, all users who are associated with the dial plan will be prevented from receiving fax messages. Enabling or disabling faxing on a UM dial plan takes precedence over the settings for an individual UM-enabled user.
