Introduction

This manual gives you an understanding of the main functionality for the Outlook integration of PamFax.

PamFax for Outlook is a simple add-in which makes it possible to send emails, attachments and appointments as faxes with the PamFax client installation.


  Installation
 

 

The installation is very straightforward. This add-in can will be automatically installed by the PamFax client installer. PamFax for Outlook requires an installed version of either:

  • Microsoft Outlook 2007

  •  Microsoft Outlook 2010

This integration is only compatible with these two versions. If these requirements are met, setup will then install Outlook integration of PamFax.

 

If Outlook is currently running, the setup will show a notification that Outlook has to be closed before continuing with the installation. The setup will then install all required components.


The next time you start Outlook you’ll see the customization installer performing the last installation step.

 

 How to send emails as fax
 

 

If you want to send an email with PamFax you’ll just have to select one or more email items and then do a right click and select “Send as fax” on the context menu or click on the button “Send as fax” in the ribbon.

Clicking “Send Fax” will open the PamFax Client with the documents and recipients you have selected.


How to choose recipients only
 

You can use your Outlook Address Book, if you just want to select the recipients and add documents later with the PamFax Client. The procedure is the same as selecting the emails you want to fax. You can submit your selected contacts via the context menu or the button in the ribbon.
You will get a dialog to choose the recipients fax number if you have only selected one recipient and it has more than one fax number.
