Resending Faxes (Redialing a Busy Number)

There are two methods of redialing: Automatic redialing and Manual redialing.

  • Automatic Redialing

    If you send a document and the recipient's line is busy, the machine will redial the number after a specified interval.

    Automatic Redialing

  • Manual Redialing

    You can redial to the recipients dialed using the Numeric buttons.

    Manual Redialing

  • It may be possible that faxes will reach unintended recipients due to the misdialing or incorrect registration of fax/telephone numbers. When you send important documents, it is recommended that you send them after speaking on the telephone.
