Resolve

Remove several recipients and resend fax

You can limit the number of recipients allowed for a fax. If your users send faxes that exceed that limit, the fax will not be sent. To fix this, the person sending the fax can remove recipients from the fax to be within the allowed limit and then resend the fax. However, you can also change the allowed limit.

Caution: Incorrectly editing the registry might severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data.

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.

To set the limit of recipients allowed for a sent fax:

  1. To open Fax Service Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Fax Service Manager.
  2. Click the Action menu, and then click Stop to stop the Fax service.
  3. To open Registry Editor, click Start, click Run, and then type regedit.
  4. In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Fax\, in the right pane, double-click the value name RecipientsLimit, and then set the value to the maximum number of recipients. No value, or a value of zero, indicates no limit.
  5. Close Registry Editor.
  6. In Fax Service Manager, click the Action menu, and then click Start to restart the Fax service.
