How to send a fax via email using DirectFax email services
Start a new email and insert a compatible file (alternatively, you can type out a message to fax).
From there, in the To field, enter a fax number using the following format.
[faxnumber]@directfax.net or [faxnumber]@directfax.ca depending on what you have used when setting up your connector. The format you decide will be dependent on whether your organization is configured to the United States (@directfax.net) or to Canada (@directfax.ca).
Once your message looks good and the attachment is finished uploading, click Send.
After your message has been completed, you will receive a notification at the same user regarding the status of your fax:
