Faxing from a Mac

The RightFax Utility is unavailable on Macs. Instead, you can send RightFaxes through your email client (Mac Mail, Office  2016, or through a web browser at email.elon.edu).

1.) Open a new message in your mail client

2.) In the 'To' field, you will need to type the following:

  • fax=receipientfaxnumber/pn=recipientname@rightfax.pop

If you are faxing an Elon University employee, such as Ryan Gay at the Technology Service Desk, you would enter the following:

  • fax=2823/pn=RyanGay@rightfax.pop

  This image shows the syntax for sending a fax on a Mac, where the number next to the fax command is the fax number and the recipient is the name listed prior to the @ symbol.

If you are sending a fax to a non-University LOCAL fax number, you would enter the following:

  • fax=85551234/pn=JohnDoe@rightfax.pop

This image shows how to enter a fax number for off-campus, including 8 to dial off-campus.

If you are sending a fax to a long-distance number, you would enter the following:

  • fax=817045551234/pn=JaneDoe@rightfax.pop

  This image shows the syntax for an off-campus long distance number, including 8, 1, the area code, and then the fax number.

3.) Fill out the subject header and the rest of the email with the required text/attachments and click send

Please note that this process will take between 5-10 minutes to send a fax.
