6500A PLUS: How to FORWARD FAXES TO EMAIL?

I have just bought a HP6500A PLUS and was told that i can forward faxes to email.

 

I only found the option to forward to a folder on the PC.

 

How do I get the Fax machine to automatically email the fax to me?

 

I tried the FAX FORWARDING feature but that only allows numerals and no email addresses....

 

I have searched the forum and seen that this question was asked many times before but no answer has been ever given....d

 

Can someone from HP please give us an answer..?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

I believe HP OJ 6500A Plus printer does not support routing incoming faxes to email. Someone has gave you wrong info. As of the now the printers which support this feature are:

 

HP Officejet Pro 8500 Premium A909n and HP Officejet Pro 8500A Premium A910n.

 

These two printers support:

 

1) Scan to shared folder on network

2) Scan to email like Gmail, yahoo etc

3) Fax to shared folder on network (B/W faxes only)

4) Fax to email (B/W faxes only)

 

To use above features s/w installation is not required. And the printer should be connected to network.

Thanks for your prompt reply...

 

So is this final? or is there a chance of a firmware upgrade that would allow it? (as the printer does have its wn email address so i doubt it would be difficult to add the feature)

 

thanks again

I don't think there will be firmware upgrade of this printer in the future.

 

Have you heard about EFAX service? This is there website: http://www.efax.com

 

Take a look and if it suites your requirement go ahead with this service. I think printer is not required to use this service.

Re: 6500A PLUS: How to FORWARD FAXES TO EMAIL?

you can setup efax but it will cost you for the service. hp does off a free hp efax service but only on printers that dont have fax port. so if you looking for a free solution, efax aint gonna do it for you.
