Below is a quick start guide on how to use CloudFax. The service allows individuals to send faxes via the Outlook desktop application to fax lines.
Send a fax
- Create a new email message
- Enter the fax number as an email address. (Example: To: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Enter content in the Subject field
- Note: Content entered in the Subject field will populate the default cover page's "Regarding" field
- View the default cover page here
- Attach the file to be faxed
- (Optional) Enter cover page content in the email body
- Note: If you enter text in the body of the email, the fax service will create a cover page for your fax instead of using the cover page you included in your attachment. The text entered in the body of the email will populate the body of the cover letter. If you do not want the fax service to override your preferred cover page, do not include any text in the body of your email.
