Enable or Disable Inbound Faxing on a UM Mailbox Policy

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can enable or disable inbound faxes for users associated with a Unified Messaging (UM) mailbox policy. By default, when you enable users for Unified Messaging, this option is selected but users can't receive fax messages until you specify the URI for the fax partner server and deploy a fax partner server for your organization. If the Unified Messaging mailbox policy is associated with UM servers that use TCP and TLS, you'll need to enter URIs for both TCP and TLS. If the option to allow incoming faxes is disabled on the UM dial plan, UM-enabled users associated with the UM mailbox policy won't be able to receive faxes.
