Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing > Receiving Faxes Automatically on Your Computer

Receiving Faxes Automatically on Your Computer

It's actually pretty easy to set up your computer to receive faxes automatically. All you need is a phone line, and Panther's Fax utility (). You can set up the Fax to answer after a certain number of rings, and you don't have to be logged in; however, your Macintosh needs to be on and not in sleep mode. Although your Macintosh can be set up to receive faxes, it does not generate a record of what you've received (or sent for that matter), like most fax applications.

Receive Faxes Automatically

Click the Apple menu, click System Preferences, and then click the Print & Fax icon.

Click the Faxing tab, and then select from the following options:

  • Receive Faxes On This Computer. Select to receive faxes.

  • My Fax Number. Enter your fax number into the field, exactly as you would dial the number.

  • When a Fax Arrives Answer After. Enter how many rings are required before the Fax answers the phone.

  • Save To. Select the check box, and then select where to save the faxes.

  • Email To. Select the check box, and then select where to e-mail the faxes.

  • Print On Printer: Select the check box, and then select a printer. Faxes automatically are printed as they are received.

Click the Close button.
