When a Fax send attempt has occurred with GFI FaxMaker and default options are enabled, the sending user should receive a Transmission Report to Email stating whether the Fax job was successful or not. In the subject line of the Email there will appear a [::resend=snumberstring] if the Fax was sent successfully or [::resend=fnumberstring] if the Fax attempt failed, where the numberstring entry is a code which is tied to the original Fax job. To make use of this resend string, the user needs to simply reply to the Transmission Report Email and the Fax job should be recreated and send with the original contents.
- By default, attachments used for the resend are stored in a directory for 2 days if success on the original Fax send. The attachments are stored for 7 days if failure on the original Fax send. This means that if the Fax job was originally successful, the resend option is only available for a period of 2 days. If the Fax job originally failed, the resend option is only available for a period of 7 days.
- The resend option will work only in an environment where Microsoft Exchange is present and Faxes are sent from Microsoft Outlook with a MAPI profile. If Microsoft Exchange is not internal to the organization, the reply does not route directly to the GFI FaxMaker server, therefore, cannot re-piece the original Fax job.
