How to use Advanced flags with Fax to Email If you are a user of Fax to Email you already know how easy it is to send faxes. Once you setup your FaxForward account you just just send an email with an attachment to FAXNUMBER@westfax.com where you replace FAXNUMBER with the ten digit number. i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Subject of the email becomes the Fax Header and the fax is sent as soon as it’s received.
There are a few more advanced “commands” you can use to alter the workings of the FaxForward.
These commands are placed in the Email subject field.
Here’s a list of the switches and a quick description of their function:
CoverpageName– Use a specific named coverpage that you setup on home.westfax.com.
Here’s an example subject line:
/h Therapy Fax /rs /faxattachmentsonly
This would yield a fax that has “Therapy Fax” as the job name and header. Only the attachments will be sent, and the attachments will be rendered in standard fax resolution.
