CSID
The CSID (Calling Station Identification) is an electronic identifier sent with outbound faxes, usually the first 20 characters of your company name or fax number, which does not appear in the fax header line. This setting also controls the number of records displayed on a single page, as well as all folders and the records displayed in the Sent Folder and Address Book.
Time Zone
Control times and dates to display in your specified time zone, affecting both inbound and outbound faxes.
