First I send with about 7 attachments and wrote email Body as well.


Attainments are such as: JPG, Doc, PDF Formats.


But all the times only first No1 # attachment of faxed are sent but not all of the attachment.

Then later i figure out and change all Format to become only one file with Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro, so all JPG, Doc and PDF are combined into one file.


So now this time i attached only one file but this time no matter i sent 5 or 7 pages all went through.


Email body was not sent out as one of Fax pages, so writing email Body as Fax is useless.




1. Do not make attachment more than one it is useless and only 1st attachment will be sent.
2. If you already attach do not write anything in email body anymore , that in fact can't send, if you want to write something as email body use Adobe Acrobat and combine all as one and send just only as one file.
3. Check confirmation message in your registered email that how many pages went through after sent, if not all there is something wrong.
4.Sending multiple Fax numbers in send " To" with separate with ";" are successful
5.Receiving Fax to Email from outside is no problem at all, just be ready a printer.
6.Currently each time sending cost will be charge as 10 C per send for local.
7.Emergin , sending many attachments will make digitally separate so technically need too radial many times to send many pages separately but System won't do that , system will make only one phone call and that's is, disconnected so don't try to attach many files to send one time but make it better as All-In-One.
8.According to the test, the Fax will be received as colorless as Black and white.
9.When you scanned something should have a good quality scanner and absolute clear Black and white or otherwise receiving side papers will be seen as many dots and unclear.



But i still have no clue that at this moment any other software make better than Adobe Acrobat at this moment so that if you know any please let me know, thanks.



How you Guys do about that, any comments with clever way please?



Are there any software good to use for combination into one same format?

Again, this is correct as stated in the FAQ.
