Does your company use both MDaemon and RelayFax? Did you know that you can allow your users to very easily compose and send faxes via MDaemon’s web mail (otherwise known as WorldClient)?
What is RelayFax?
RelayFax is a network fax solution that allows users to send/receive faxes right from their desktops – no need to get up and go to the Fax machine. Not only that, users can send and receive faxes from anywhere in the world as long as they have an internet connection, and have access to their email.
How does RelayFax work?
In order to understand how email-to-fax (sending a fax), or fax-to-email (receiving a fax), is going to work let me first give a brief explanation on how RelayFax functions.
When RelayFax receives a fax the fax is converted to an image format of the admin’s choosing (i.e. JGP, BMP, PNG, etc). The image file is then attached to an email and sent off to a preconfigured user(s).
When RelayFax sends a fax on behalf of a user the information the user wants to send is put in the form of an email and sent to a specific email address(es). RelayFax can be configured to check any number of email accounts via the POP3 protocol, download these emails and process accordingly.
When a new message is received by RelayFax the email is opened and RelayFax will read the data in the message and form a faxable (TIFF) image with the user provided information, and then send it out as a fax over the modem.
Each user that wants to send faxes in this way must have an account set up in RelayFax.
