At the moment file conversion has been taken off for further testing.

Standard .pdf files will still send through.

I thought I'd try this... It didn't work for me.

I'm sending from Thunderbird. I tried sending the email, without attachments, as html and plain text. No faxes were delivered/received.
For the email sent as html only, I received an "Email2Fax failed..." notification correctly.
For the email sent as plain-text only, I received an "Fax Successful..." notification - Incorrectly.

I then confirmed that I could still send, receive, and receive email notification correctly for a .pdf attachment. This still worked - OK.

Matt.

Edit: Whoops. Didn't read that...

That probably explains it.

So we can't send doc files now? Maybe that's why mine failed this morning.

That is incorrect, .all file types other that .pdf were only taken down within the hour.

Testing has concluded.

All previous file types reported on Friday, November 9th can be sent through.

I've tested the sending of Word and Excel documents as attachments and they work fine to my home fax.

Is there any reason the fax service would fail to send to our ADSL service number?

I tried sending a test .doc at 1:40PM today and haven't received anything on the fax or in my inbox.

I acknowledge I may have used the incorrect case in the password I set, but then, I haven't received an email advising incorrect details anyway.

I don't have any receipt of an Email to Fax being sent to @fax.exemail.com.au at 1:40PM today.

Can you please confirm (PM) the address that you sent it too and details of the attachment?

There are compatability problems with different PDF engines.

PDFCreator, (Sourceforge) produced garbled faxes.
OpenOffice 2.3 pdf worked O.K.

Probably mentioned before, in order of priority:

1)
Ability to look for password anywhere in the Subject field.
I'd like to have a useful subject in the email to fax, rather than just my registered email password.

I often search by subject when looking at what I've sent.


2)
Ability to send custom header.


3)
Text email, without attachment, didn't format correctly.

This is not subject to change. The password must be kept with the subject line.


>>2)
>>Ability to send custom header.
This is not possible. I suggest placing your cover page within the document that you attach.

>>3)
>>Text email, without attachment, didn't format correctly.
This will be looked into.

Thanks William.
I include my password in the subject line, in addition to a useful subject.
I get an authentication failure.

It would be nice if it would look for the password anywhere in the subject field, (I guess the end would be best).

Only include the password.

I've been trying to fax a pdf generated from a scanned image with no success. The fax is never received and I never receive a rejection email.

However, if I convert the pdf to a jpeg it works fine.

Hi dsc68

What program are you using to create the PDF file? From this post (and my own experience) it seems that all PDF creation programs are not made equal.

Cheers
