Prevent a UM-Enabled User from Receiving Faxes

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can prevent a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Unified Messaging (UM) user from receiving faxes. By default, when you enable a user for Unified Messaging, the user will receive faxes. However, you can prevent a user from being able to receive faxes after they've been enabled for Unified Messaging. You can also prevent multiple users from receiving faxes by disabling delivery of faxes to users who are associated with the UM dial plan.
