Voice Mail (Centrex) - Inbound fax option

Inbound fax option is available by request only.

This voice mail system allows you to receive inbound faxes at any phone number at no charge.  The fax is then sent to your email for viewing. The inbound fax option is only available upon request by contacting voice.services@doit.wisc.edu with the phone number.

Please note: If you choose to have inbound faxing, the personal operator (or operator escape) will be disabled. The personal operator allows a caller to 'escape out' of voice mail, by pressing 0, to a pre-defined phone number.  The Web PhoneManager allows you to change the personal operator but it will not work even if there is a number in the field. 

When recording the greeting for your mailbox, it has been found that any ‘dead air’ between the beep and when you start your recording, will result in the fax not transmitting.   Please re-record your greeting, if necessary, and be sure to start speaking immediately after the beep.

Please note that this functionality is not avaialble in Cisco VoIP Voicemail.
