III. Scan and Send to Fax

Faxing capabilities are unavailable with the Canon printers/copiers. In order to scan a file for faxing, you should scan and send the file to yourself. Then, you should use the Fax Utility to send the fax from your computer. Please note that a RightFax number is not required for use of the Fax Utility. If you need the Fax Utility installed on your computer, please contact the Technology Service Desk at 278-5200.
