Sending a fax by email is easy. Just enter the destination number address as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org, where "destinationfax#" is the number you wish to fax TO. For example, if you are faxing to someone at 888-555-8888, you would address the email to [email protected] Then, simply type a message in the body of the email (optional), attach any documents for faxing, and hit SEND.
Note: The SPF requirement only affects sending faxes through E-Mail. You can still send faxes using the website or our fax apps regardless of SPF status.
If you attempt to send faxes by E-Mail your faxes will fail if your email is not SPF enabled. Note: If you use the following email domain service providers, you should likely already be set up with SPF enabled
The SPF requirement protects against someone spoofing your E-Mail address(es) It also adds another layer of security against phishing attacks and spam E-Mail.

Why did we make this change?
