Does MX Support Sending Faxes from the Computer

#1

Post by Falcon » Sat Aug 17, 2019 1:04 pm

My computer has a Fax/Modem installed. I looked through the Package Installer and did not find any reference to Fax. I also opened the Start Menu and did not see anything related to Fax their either. Then I checked the User Manual but there was no reference to sending Faxes. Is there a utility that can be used to send or receive Faxes through the MX computer?

Thanx.

Open the Package Installer, click the Stable Repo tab, then type fax in the search box. There are a few things listed there that might help you.
