      2.       To send a FAX, e-mail the attachment to [10-digit FAX number]@faxage.com (i.e. 2345678901@faxage.com.  No need to put a ‘1’ first.  Do not use dashes). 

        Received FAXes will show up in the Inbox of the specified people that want to receive them in your department.   To make changes to your department's send and/or receive list, please send a request to gunnufsonr@uwstout.edu.

      3.       Once a FAX is received in your Inbox, you will need to supply credentials to open it.  All FAXes will be received as PDF files.
