Is this possible, using the API, to have an email notification sent on outbound fax reception or failure?

It does not look like it but maybe I am wrong.

Thank you and have a nice day,

In the above article has steps to configure notifications to incoming fax. Can you check in your ring central account's notification tab and see if you have an option to configure the same for oubound fax.

The answer is no. But you can implement an app to do that if you need.

Basically, after sending a Fax message, you can keep polling the status of that fax using the messageId until the status is no longer "Queue", then an email from your app.

Hi Phong!

That's actually what I had implemented using the information you had provided me with to poll their status in another post.

I just wanted to be sure I was not reinventing the wheel, I would not be doing my job properly if I was continually doing that.

Thank you and have a nice day!
