Create and Configure Fax User Accounts

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can use Fax Service Manager to create user accounts automatically or manually, and to set who can access the fax server inbox.

To automatically create a user account for a fax server
  1. Open Fax Service Manager.

  2. In the left pane, right-click Fax, and then click Properties.

  3. On the Accounts tab, select the Auto-create accounts on connection check box so that an Administrator does not need to explicitly create each user account.

To add a user account for a fax server
  1. Open Fax Service Manager.

  2. In the left pane, click Accounts.

  3. In the right pane, view the existing accounts and determine which new accounts you want to add.

  4. To add a new account, right-click Accounts, click New, and then click Account.

  5. In Create New Account, provide a user name and domain, and then click Create.

  6. To later delete an account, right-click the account, and then click Delete.

To configure who can reassign messages
  1. Open Fax Service Manager.

  2. In the left pane, right-click Fax, and then click Properties.

  3. On the Accounts tab, under Reassign Setting, do one of the following:

    • Click On if you want messages that are received to be reassigned to individual accounts by only certain users.

    • Click Off if you want all user accounts to be able to access the fax server inbox to view incoming messages.

Additional considerations

  • To configure fax components, you must be a member of the Administrators group or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

  • To open Fax Service Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Fax Service Manager.
