Using Internet Faxes (I-Fax)

Internet fax (I-fax) is a function to send and receive faxes via the Internet. Scanned documents are converted into TIFF format image and are sent as e-mail attachments. Even if you are sending to a distant place or you have lots of documents to send, you do not have to worry about transmission costs because telephone lines are not used. With this function, you can also send and receive I-faxes between devices in the same network using an office LAN.
To send documents to an e-mail address used on a computer or mobile device, see Basic Operations for Scanning Originals.
Standards for I-fax are defined by ITU-T (International Telecommunication Union - Telecommunication Standardization Sector). You can send and receive with other manufacturer's machines as long as that machine is ITU-T compliant. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE is compliant with Recommendation T.37 (Procedures for the transfer of facsimile data via store-and-forward on the Internet).
