Fax (Email-fax)


The information provided in the steps below refers to both sending and receiving faxes at Bellevue College without using a physical fax machine.

In an effort to reduce expenses related to fax machines on campus, BC has implemented a FaxServer.  A FaxServer eliminates the need for a physical fax machine.

Anyone who has a BC email account can send a fax using the instructions below.

A dedicated folder on a server manages incoming faxes.  

Only those with Administrative Permission will have access to incoming faxes. A supervisor will need to submit a ticket requesting permission for someone to access incoming faxes.

The ticket submitted by the supervisor should include the last 4 fax number digits that have been assigned to the department. 

\\shares\faxes\xxxx.  **Substitute your 4 digit fax number for xxxx above**
