Send a fax from an SAU printer

Tags fax srfax efax

Any SAU printer with scan to email features can be used to send a fax while on SAU's network, but you cannot receive responses to your fax. While a need to fax a document is rare, sometimes a student, staff, or faculty member may need to send a fax for school or personal business. Please see the disclaimers at the bottom of this article before using this service.

To send a fax using scan to email:

1. Make sure you know the number you need to fax to, for this example we will assume you are trying to send a fax to 517-750-1234

2. Load your document on the glass scanning tray or top feeder tray of the printer. If you need to send more than one page you should use the tray on top of the printer.

3. Select the "scan" option on the screen of the printer

4. Select "Email" on the next screen

5. Select the keyboard button (looks like a rubik's cube) to type in a new email address

6. Type in the destination fax number, make sure to add a "1" (the country code, it may be different if you are sending a fax outside of the United States) at the beginning and do not include any dashes or parentheses. Then add after the number. See the screenshot below to understand the format. It should look like ""

7. Press "OK" and then the green button with diamond to scan and send your document. You should see/hear the printer pull in your document and start scanning it.

8. Once your document is scanned, press "job finish" to send your document.

9. If you did everything correctly, you should see a small pop-up in the bottom left corner that says "sending email"
