Receiving Faxes
Two modes are available for receiving faxes: Auto Receive and Manual Receive.
In the Auto Receive mode, reception of a fax from a remote machine begins 
automatically.
In the Manual Receive mode, reception of a fax from a remote machine is manual. This 
mode is convenient for confirming the sender or using an external telephone to confirm 
whether it is a fax before beginning reception.
Using G3-ID allows the machine to reject faxes from specific fax numbers or unknown 
fax numbers. You can register up to 50 fax numbers as rejected fax numbers.
Rejecting faxes from specific fax numbers:
The machine rejects faxes when the G3-ID sent from the sender’s machine is 
included in the registered fax numbers to be rejected.
Rejecting faxes from unknown fax numbers:
The machine rejects faxes when the G3-ID is not sent from the sender’s machine.
G3-ID contains a phone number and other information that are registered in the 
sender’s machine.
You can change the default value of [Fax Receiving Mode] in the System Administration mode. For 
information on how to change the default value, refer to "5 Tools" > "Fax Service Settings" > "Fax 
Control" > "Fax Receiving Mode" in the Administrator Guide.
For information on how to reject faxes from specific fax numbers or unknown fax numbers, refer to "5 
Tools" > "Fax Service Settings" > "Fax Control" > "Block Inbound Faxes" and "Block Unknown Fax 
Numbers" in the Administrator Guide.
