Set fax forwarding

You can set your product to forward incoming faxes to another fax number. When the fax arrives at your

product, it is stored in the memory. The product then dials the fax number that you have specified and sends

the fax. If the product cannot forward a fax because of an error (for example, the number is busy) and

repeated redial attempts are unsuccessful, your product prints the fax.

If the product runs out of memory while receiving a fax, it terminates the incoming fax and only forwards the

pages and partial pages that have been stored in the memory.

When it is using the fax-forwarding feature, the product (rather than the computer) must be receiving the

faxes, and the answer mode must be set to 

Automatic
