This section describes the flow of operations for sending a fax.

Place your originals.
For information on placing your originals, see "Placing Originals."
Press (Main Menu) → [Fax] → specify the desired destinations.
If the desired function is not displayed on the Main Menu screen, press [Show All].
If [Fax] is set to 'On' in Limit New Destination, you cannot enter new destinations. In this case, select a stored destination by using the Local Address Book, the Remote Address Book, the LDAP server, or One-touch Buttons. (See "Restricting Sending to New Addresses.")
You can specify and send to up to 256 destinations at the one time. However, if you specify a group address as a destination, each address stored in that group is counted as one destination.

Press (Start).
If the original is placed on the platen glass, follow the instructions that appear on the touch panel display → press (Start).
When scanning is complete, press [Start Sending].
Scan the original again from the first page if a message appears indicating that scanning was canceled because the data size for the scanned original exceeded the maximum data size.
You may be able to perform scanning by changing the following settings.
-Lower the resolution (See "Setting the Resolution.")
-Reduce the sharpness (See "Adjusting the Image Sharpness.")
If you set the Preview mode to 'On', you can verify the images from the Preview screen before sending your document. (See "Preview.")
The machine automatically detects the size of the original.
When multiple sheets are fed
Scanning is stopped and the message is displayed on the screen. Follow the instructions to clear the jam. When you have cleared the jam, the resume job screen is displayed. If the machine mistakenly detects multiple sheet feeding, press [Do Not Detect Multi. Sheet Feed] to resume scanning.
To set the machine in advance to not notify you of multiple sheet feeding, perform one of the following operations.
Each time you send, press [Options] on the Fax Basic Features screen → select [Dtct. Feeder Mlti Sheet Fd] to disable the setting.
Set [Set Detect. of Feeder Multi. Sheet Fd as Def.] to [Off]. (See "Changing the Default Setting of the Multiple Sheet Feed Detection.")
When scanning is complete, remove your originals.

After a job is sent, the send settings may be retained except the specified destinations.
To cancel the settings, press (Reset).
To send other jobs with the same settings, specify destinations for the jobs as the destination specified for the previous job is not retained.

Entering Characters from the Touch Panel Display (See "Entering Characters from the Touch Panel Display.")

The maximum number of fax jobs from the Fax screen that the machine can handle is 120, including jobs with error codes. However, the actual number of send jobs from the Fax screen that the machine can handle may be less than 120, depending on the following conditions:
When multiple documents are being sent at the same time
When large documents are being sent
When a large amount of memory is being used for the Mail Boxes and Fax/I-Fax Inbox
You can print a report that contains the results of all send jobs. (See "Fax TX Report" and "Fax Activity Report.")
