For the next step, you need to configure your account. Use the E-Mail Address and Password you have configured for the user in the peoplefone web console. This is the same login as the Email2Fax service.

You will have a new window that ask you for the Fax number you went to send this document to. In this example I am sending a fax to 0211234567. If you don’t specify an "e-mail notify" you will receive a notification on the email you used to configure the Print2Fax (in this example, john.doe@peoplefone.com).

If you have set the adress book during installation, you can choose a contact from your adress book. In order to add a new contact, right click inside the cell of Address book and choose "Add New Item", then choose the name and the fax number :

Configuration

If you have an error message when you send a fax please check your email and password. You can change it from your settings under "Printers and scanner" -> click on "Manage" under the "Print2Fax" printer.

From this window, you can change your login and set your address book directory location.


Using custom address book

After adding the first contact in your address book, this file will be automatically added in the address book directory location you selected (C:\Users\Bastien\Documents in the example):

You can manually edit it as long as you respect the format: name;<fax number> and keep the same file name (addrbook.csv):
