I have a dedicated analog fax machine connected via ATA on a limited extension. I send faxes directly from the machine. When i receive faxes they go to my email. Can this setup be configured to have the fax machine print the incoming faxes?

Thanks!

The hardware setup will work though not on a limited extension, it would have to be a standard digital line/user account to be fully functional and supported.

FYI. I worked around this by creating a dedicated email address, i.e. fax@yourdomain.com, and pointed the notifications for the limited extension to that email. Then configured Outlook to auto-print all email attachments sent to the fax@ address. Works well.
