Need a Fax account? Just check out ourHIPAA Compliant Fax page and explore our plans.
An allowed sender is an email address that is configured to send faxing via email. To add an allowed sender you need to have your account created (previous step) or have an existing account with WestFax.
In the https://home.westfax.com portal you go to Settings -> Fax to Email Settings and add the email address of your MFP or the email address that your MFP utilizes to send documents. MFP's can be configured to send from one account or can use the users account. If you aren't sure ask your administrator.
Now you add the email address here and indicate if you want to return receipt sent to the sender when the fax is complete.
If you have any questions or need assistance please contact us for more information.
We will have screenshots that match most users' setups. Your MFP may look different but the steps are the same.
First you will want to login to the web interface on your MFP using the Toshiba Administrative interface. Again, if you need assistance please contact your admin.
Once you are logged in you will see several panels and pages. You will probably start on a page that looks like this.
Once you are logged in you will want to click Internet Fax on the left and select the Server Fax option. It may be disabled so you will want to enable it by clicking Show under the green icon.
You will now want to click the SMTP Client. There are several ways to set this up however we will use the SMTP method for this demo.
Here are the tested and confirmed settings for SMTP:
Other settings are default or consult your IT admin for normal settings. You should use Connection Test and then once successful hit Save
Now you will want to set the Recipient Domain Name. This is a critical setting. Enter westfax.com. The From Address should be the same as the allowed sender in the previous step.
When you are done here click SAVE
You may have to reboot your Toshiba unit. After it reboots you can click the FAX button on the panel of your MFP, scan your document, enter the fax number, and click send. You are good to go!

Great news! Last month, as you may or may not know we rolled out built in cover pages into the Print Driver and the Fax Console. Now we have integrated cover pages into Email to Fax. Now, adding a cover page is as simple as adding a little piece of text into your email subject.
Modern cloud fax services offer substantially greater flexibility than standalone fax machines or multi-function printer/copiers (MFPs) connected to a dedicated phone line. But did you know that you can still use your MFP to send faxes, even with a cloud fax service?
