The Electronic Fax service provided by the Networking and Telecommunications Department has been restored. The service was updated to remove the dependencies on local FoIP (Fax over Internet Protocol) which was causing some fax transmissions, both inbound and outbound, to fail. Outbound faxes are now using these new services and inbound faxes will be switched as soon as possible.
This change in trunking, however, required an unexpected change in dialing when sending faxes. Now, all fax destinations must be treated as a long distance number and all eleven digits are always required (but no long distance charges are assessed). Authorized users must now use the address of 1 + area code + exchange + phone number @ fax.missouristate.edu. So to send to a mythical on-campus fax of 6-1234, authorized users would send to email@example.com and to send to an off-campus mythical fax of 314-555-1234, use firstname.lastname@example.org. All eleven digits are now always required to send a fax successfully. Please see the link below for more information:
