You can also send faxes from the command line in a DOS Window.
The command line with its parameters looks like this:
sf5.exe send "c:\productquotes\Quote100.txt" "Sam Smith" "18885551212" "R" "Y" "The product quote you asked for" "Quote for SKU# 5985" "Product Quotes" "BCODE"
The command line must begin with the word send
following the word send you should include each part in double quotes as shown above. The command line parameters are as follows:
•File Name including the complete file path
•The fax recipient's name
•The fax number exactly as it should be dialed (Snappy Fax does not use dialing rules) or the email address (see next item)
•Routing - "R" for regular fax or "S" for submit to fax server or "E" for email
•Cover page Yes or No, "N" for no cover page desired, "Y" for use the default cover page template in snappy fax's settings
•Optional parameter, if included it is the fax subject that is included on the cover page if using a cover page
•Optional parameter, if included it is the desired contents to be included in the message area on the cover page

Note: To successfully process files specific to a particular application (example Microsoft Word files) that supporting application must be installed on your computer. This caveat applies to
.doc, .docx, .rtf, .xls, .xlsx, .odt, .ods files and also to .txt files.
These file types are processed by a calling procedure to the supporting application to print to the snappy fax printer with the resulting image file being grabbed by snappy fax to process when
the print operation is complete. For .txt files, a call to Notepad is made to perform the supporting print operation.
