Sending a Fax to a Registered Recipient

Registering a recipient's fax / telephone number and name in the printer's directory enables you to send faxes easily.

 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, we recommend that you send them after speaking on the telephone.

 Learn how to send a fax by manually entering the fax number of the recipient on the operation panel.

 In case the printer was not able to send a fax, such as when the recipient's line was busy, it has the function to automatically redial the number after a specified interval. Automatic redialing is enabled by default. To cancel automatic redialing, wait until the printer starts redialing, then press the Stop button.
