Why Can't I Send Faxes from My Email

Fax to Email is a service that lets you use your email address to send and receive faxes. It is a modernised and hassle-free version of your traditional fax machine — where every transaction can be instantly done online.

There are several options on how you can send a fax. One of these is sending a fax using your email address.

If you have attempted to send a fax, but received this error message below, it means that the email you used is not an authorised email address of your account.

Please take note that only authorised email addresses can send faxes. You can do so by setting up the email addresses that will be used to send faxes within your Account Manager.
