Receiving Faxes

    When someone sends you a fax, the message is delivered to the email address on your account.

    • Faxes will come from the email address message@inbound.efax.com.
    • The subject line of your email will be "Fax Received From (Fax Number)".

    Faxes are also delivered to the eFax Message Center. Faxes are received and stored for up to two years or until you delete them. To access the eFax Message Center, login to your eFax account and click on the eFax Message Center link.

    As an mBox™ Plus customer, you have the option of accessing your messages in two ways. You can view your faxes through your email or you can login to your mBox™ Plus account and retrieve your faxes through the eFax Message Center.

    To access faxes through your email:

    • Login to your email account.
    • Open the email message from inbound@mail.efax.com.
    • Open the attached file.

    To access faxes through eFax Message Center:

    • Login to your eFax account.
    • Click on eFax Message Center.
    • To open a fax, double-click on the Subject.
    • Open the fax attachment by clicking on the File Name at the bottom of the screen.
    • Once the fax attachment is open, you can click the Download button and save the fax to your computer.

    NOTE: Faxes received in .EFX format can only be opened with eFax Messenger Software. To download eFax Messenger, please visit the download page. If you would like to receive your faxes in .PDF or .TIF, please click HERE for further details.

    You can choose to have faxes delivered in one of three different file formats:

    • PDF, which can be viewed with the Adobe Acrobat Reader software.
    • EFX, which can be viewed through your eFax Messenger software.
    • TIFF, which supports multi-page images and can be opened in many programs, including Imaging (the default Windows TIFF viewer) and eFax Messenger.

    To change the your fax file format:

    • Login to your mBox powered by eFax® account.
    • Click on Preferences.
    • Click the Fax Options tab.
    • From the Fax File Format drop-down menu choose the format in which to receive faxes: EFX, TIF, or PDF.
    • Click Update.

    NOTE: This change will only affect faxes received after the new file format is selected. Faxes received prior to this change will remain unchanged.

    You can open your faxes two ways:

    • Click on the attachment in the email message from mBox™ powered by eFax® and your faxes should open automatically in Preview.
    • Log in to your account, click Message Center and you will be able to view all of your faxes received within the last two years. You can Read your faxes, Save them or forward them to a separate email address(es). When you open the file attachment, preview will automatically open.

    If someone outside of the country would like to send you a fax, they will need to dial your mBox powered by eFax® number using the standard methods for international dialing from their country.

    For example, if you have a UK mBox powered by eFax® number, the person faxing you needs to drop the local dialing code "0" and they need to add the country code "44".

    The number (0)20 7555 1234 would become +442075551234.

    To obtain a list of international dialing codes, please click HERE

    Your eFax number works just like any regular fax number. Potential senders do not need to be mBox powered by eFax® subscribers. Anyone can send a fax to your mBox powered by eFax® Number.
