Your email to fax request has failed.

Possible Reasons for Failure:

HI amitpn,

Your fax failed as the receiving fax did not confirm that it had received the fax entirely. The response returned was an invalid fax tone. Without confirmation being received from the recipient we cannot flag the fax as sent.

Bear in mind that even though you may receive a fax tone by dialling a number that this does not automatically mean that a fax will go through, as there are other processes that occur to ensure that a fax is received.

Cheers Will.
