Enable a UM-Enabled User to Receive Faxes

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can enable a Unified Messaging (UM) user to receive faxes. By default, when you enable a user for Unified Messaging, they will be able to receive faxes. Faxing can be enabled or disabled on UM dial plans, UM mailbox policies, or the UM-enabled user's mailbox. By default, although the user's mailbox allows incoming faxes, you must first enable inbound faxing on the UM mailbox policy that's associated with the UM-enabled user and enter the fax partner's URI.

For a specific user to be able to receive fax messages in their Microsoft Exchange 2010 mailbox, each Unified Messaging server that's associated with the dial plan that the user is associated with must be configured to accept incoming fax calls. In addition, the UM dial plan must also be configured to allow faxes to be sent to UM-enabled users.
