This article provides information on searching for a registered fax recipient by name on the PIXMA MX472 / MX479 / MX532.



You can search a registered recipient by sorting in alphabetical order and send the fax.


  • 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.
