address examples - specifying the fax number...
id at fax.co.uk enables you to send an email to any fax machine
or mobile phone.
Simply email your message to us and our automatic system will
deliver it for you.
Of course you will need to specify the number, simply include
it in the email address that you're sending the message to. For
Email addresses should never contain any spaces
but if you wish you can use dots and dashes to make it more readable.
They will be completely ignored if used in the fax number:
You can even specify the recipients name in the email address if
you wish, again there must be no spaces in the address so use dots
This will result in a fax that says: "Fax To:
Remember the name (if used) must be before the number and
the name itself must not contain any
International numbers can be specified, use a '00'
prefix as if dialling from the UK:
(This example uses the code '33' for France)
Or the usual international format with a plus sign:
Or simply forget any international access codes
and start with the dialling code for the country
Of course you can also combine international numbers
The format of these addresses is quite flexible if
you follow these simple rules.
- No spaces anywhere in the address, use dots instead
- If specifying a recipients name
- it must appear before the number
- there must be no numbers in the name, they may be confused
with the fax number.
Email messages sent to faxes in this manner will say:
||the fax number or recipient name if specified
||your name (email@example.com)
Here is the text of your email message the text
of your email message the text of your email message
the text of your email message the text of your email
message the text of your email message the text of
your email message
In addition it's good idea to avoid other odd
characters in the address, particularly '&' or brackets,
some email systems will not tolerate them.
All mobile numbers in the UK start 07... any messages
sent to a number starting 07 in the UK will automatically be sent
via SMS / Text message. So in the UK you don't have to do anything
special to send SMS or fax - it will decide automatically which
method to use.
One exception is 076... these are pagers, in which
case your message will still be sent to the pager, but they must
have a suitable message pager on a current contract (not the type
that have no monthly fee but the calls to the pager are at premium
rate, we don't support these and the message will not be sent)
To send messages to mobile phones and pagers
outside the UK... (or those with a foriegn mobile number roaming
in the UK)
You'll have to indicate in the email address that you'd
like the message to go as an SMS rather than a fax simply prefix
the number with 'sms-' something like: firstname.lastname@example.org
(Please note: this does not apply
to British mobile phones that are roaming abroad - just use the
UK number as normal.)
