In Microsoft Exchange, Global Address List (GAL) business fax contacts can be stored. When sending a fax, these business fax contacts can be included in the composed fax email request sent from Microsoft Outlook. This article provides the process to create the GAL entry.
The following steps explain how you can create a GAL entry:
Create a new contact in Active Directory (AD) using the Active Directory Users and Computers management console found in the Microsoft Exchange program group. You can create the new contact by right-clicking on Users > New > Contact.
On the Create Exchange e-mail address stage of the new contact wizard, click on the Modify button and choose SMTP Address.
Enter the fax number into the Email address field in the format:
<number>@faxmaker.com. For example
Finish creating the contact.
Test the contact using Outlook by selecting the GAL contact entry from the address book.
Ensure that the fax server is sending the fax correctly by checking the status of the fax using the GFI FaxMaker Monitor.
