Snappy Fax

THE GOLD STANDARD IN FAX SOFTWARE

For 20 years, businesses around the world have trusted Snappy Fax to automate fax processing, integrate with practice management systems and manage their fax documents.

Email to Fax

Email to Fax is now included in the latest update of Snappy Fax Desktop/Client.  Here we will show you how to configure this option and how to use it.

You can send an email from any device, attach images and Snappy Fax will send to the designated fax recipient.

Firstly, you must set up a unique email address with your internet service provider or on your web server.  This email address should not be used for any other purpose.   You can monitor this address with your mail reader, if you like.  However, you should configure it to not delete emails from the mail server.

Secondly, open Snappy Fax and go to settings. Find the new settings category “Email to Fax”. It’s the very last category on the settings screen.

  • Check the “Enable Email to Fax” checkbox
  • Select the appropriate email account name from the drop-down box (more on that later)
  • If you will ever want to send a cover page you *must* select a cover page template file from the drop-down list.
  • If your mail server inserts a spam identifier into the email subject then enter it in the box indicated.  It must match exactly.  This is to assure the spam identifier gets stripped out before parsing the subject of the email.
