I am sure this information is posted elsewhere by IT but in case you land here first, here are the instructions that I was sent more or less.
Anyone can now send a fax directly through MSOE email.
So say you want to send a fax to the local number 333-4444. All you need to do is address an email using the 7-digit local fax number with @fax.msoe.edu after it. So your To: address line would look like firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can then populate the cover page by filling in an email subject and typing the body portion of the email.
Then just attach your Word, Excel, or PDF document to the email and it will arrive at the destination fax machine as a regular fax.
Heads up: You'll have to scan any hard copies of documents first so you have them in an attachable form such as a PDF.
For long distance faxing, use the 10 digit fax number (in addition to a country code if faxing outside the U.S.). For example a fax address within the United States might look like email@example.com.
If you're trying to send something internally (just MSOE), you can accomplish this by treating it as a local fax and entering the 7-digit phone number of the Faculty/Staff/Department, but at that point it is little more than an email with an attachment.
Incoming faxes show up as email. Check with your department as to whether there is a designated account for received faxes and/or if there is a person in charge of managing them.
