If you plan to use the FAX ONLY mode on the fax machine, set the number of rings on the answering machine to less than 4. â¥This will allow the answering machine to answer the call ï¬rst. Record a greeting message on the answering machine. Example: âThis is (your name, business and/or telephone number). We are unable to answer the phone right now. To send a fax, start transmission. To leave a message, please speak after the beep. Thank you.â Turn on the answering machine.
Set the receive mode of the fax machine to the TEL mode (p. 62) or FAX ONLY mode (p. 63). â¥If you set it to FAX ONLY mode, set the ring count in the FAX ONLY mode (feature setting #06) to â5 EXT.TAMâ (p. 64). The number of rings on the answering machine should be less than the FAX ONLY mode ring count so that the answering machine will answer a call ï¬rst. Using the FAX ONLY mode will allow you to receive faxes if the answering machine is full. Check the remote access code of your answering machine and program the same code into the remote operation ID of the fax machine (feature setting #12). See page 67.
Note: â¥Do not pause for more than 4 seconds during the greeting message. If a 4-second pause is stored in the greeting message, all incoming calls will be routed to the unit from the answering machine even while the greeting message is playing. â¥We recommend you make the greeting message around 10 seconds long. If the greeting message is too long, some incoming fax calls may not be answered by the fax machine. â¥Each time the unit receives a document, a silent pause or fax tone may be recorded on the answering machine.
