Transfer an Incoming Fax to Your Voice Mailbox

Stanford University and School of Medicine

People can send faxes to your phone extension. When your phone rings,however, you have no way of knowing whether it's a phone call or a fax. If you answer your phone and hear the fax tone, you can transfer the incoming fax to your mailbox:

  1. Press Transfer and dial 5-0000.
  2. Press *.
  3. Ignore the prompt to enter your mailbox number. Instead:
  4. Press * again (after a slight pause).
    You will be prompted to enter the address for your message.
  5. Enter your 10-digit mailbox number.
  6. When you hear the mailbox greeting,  hang up.
