  • Fax Server - Send to email

    Hi All
    I am having trouble with server fax sending received faxes as emails. I am not using ME Exchange and when I setup the SMTP settings on the Fax setup it doesn't allow for authentication on outgoing SMTP emails. All email providers require you to use authentication nowadays when sending emails by SMTP to prevent spam.
    I had a solution until last week by using lavabit.com email that didn't require any authentication for sending email via SMTP protocol.
    Anyone have any ideas how to get around this?

    What is the Server OS and SP level?
    Is this the faxing built into Windows Server or is it third party?

        OK, moving the thread to the SBS forum

        Since SBS is built around Exchange, this may be the issue -- when you say you aren't using it, is it installed and not used, or is it not installed

          We used to use Exchange but we migrated to Google Apps, so I imagine it's still installed.

            You could setup a local SMTP relay and with outbound authentication. So the fax server would send to the local SMTP relay, and then the relay would authenticate and send via the Google servers.
