With the FAX.PLUS MFP Integration feature you can benefit from all the features of a cutting-edge cloud-based faxing solution, while still being able to send and receive paper faxes using your networked multi-function printer.
An internet-connected multi-function printer that can send and receive email.
Set up the scan to email feature on your MFP and set the outgoing email address on your all-in-one printer device the same as your FAX.PLUS username.
Added your printer’s unique email address as one of the fax recipients in your FAX.PLUS account (Learn how).
To send a fax from your all-in-one printer:
