Yes I noticed this, but i am not too bright. I still don't understand it. For example
Set To: "destination fax"@fax.exemail.com.au

Is the "destination fax" the fax number?

So say that you wanted to send a fax to 0298765432 you would send it to 0298765432@fax.exemail.com.au

Hi James

I sent a test email fax at 6:50 pm - I can't check until the morning to see if it arrived, but it isn't yet showing as sent in my User Facilities - how long should it take to turn up there?

Cheers

I also sent a couple of test faxes (after registering and following the instructions to the letter) and nothing has come through to my fax machine

... and the page title says "Exetel Mobile Facilities ..." but hopefully these are just cosmetic changes required :D
