Why did my fax fail?
Check the following list before attempting to send your fax again.
  • Double check the format of your document. If it is a PDF then it must be A4, letter or US legal size and in portrait orientation.
  • If the document you tried to send was an image, ensure the image is a supported FaxSalad format. Attempt to decrease the file size as large files can cause slower send times, resulting in receiving fax machines rejecting the fax.
  • If the receiving destination was a physical fax machine, it is possible that the machine is either switched off or congested. Confirm with the receiving party before attempting to resend.
