Configure Incoming Routing Methods
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
You can use routing methods to control what happens to faxes that are received by a fax device managed by the fax server. You can use any combination of routing methods to forward received faxes to an e-mail address, store faxes in a folder, or print faxes.
To configure incoming fax routing methods
Open Fax Service Manager.
In the left pane, double-click Fax, double-click Devices and Providers, double-click Devices, double-click the device you want to configure, and then click Incoming Methods.
In the right pane, right-click the method you want to configure, click Properties, and then do the following:
To configure the Store in a folder method, click the Store in Folder tab, and then either type the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path of the folder (\\<network location>\<folder>), or click Browse to select the folder.
To configure the Route through e-mail method, click the E-mail tab, and then type the e-mail address to which you want incoming faxes to be delivered.
For the Print method, click the Print tab, and then type the UNC path of the printer location.
- To configure the Store in a folder method, click the Store in Folder tab, and then either type the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path of the folder (\\<network location>\<folder>), or click Browse to select the folder.
Once the incoming methods have been configured, in the details pane, right-click each method, and then click Enable to enable the method, or Disable to disable it. (You may want to disable a method if, for example, you want to temporarily disable printing because the printer is down and faxes are getting stuck in the Inbox.)
|To configure incoming routing through e-mail, you must specify the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) settings of the e-mail server. For instructions, see Configure SMTP Settings for E-Mail Routing.|
To configure fax components, you must be a member of the Administrators group or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.
