With the Options pane of the Template Properties dialog, you can assign alternate values to the controls located in the Faxing and Dialing options sections of RelayFax Properties » Options. These alternate values will be applied to messages that match an Outbound Fax Rule assigning this Template.

Faxing Options

Wait this many seconds for fax machines to answer

If the Fax number to which RelayFax is trying to connect doesn't answer within this many seconds, RelayFax will abort the attempt and try again later based upon the parameters outlined below.

Stop trying if fax attempt fails this many times

When a fax attempt fails, RelayFax will continue trying to send the fax until it has failed this many times. After this number of unsuccessful attempts RelayFax will give up permanently and inform the sender that the fax could not be sent. The default setting is "3". If you enter "0" or "1" in this option then RelayFax will not try to send the fax again if the initial attempt fails.

During retries of partially completed faxes, by default RelayFax will only attempt to resend unsent pages. If you wish to configure RelayFax to attempt to resend the entire fax instead, open RelayFax.ini in Notepad and change ResendPartialFaxes=Yes to ResendPartialFaxes=No under [FaxServer].

Wait this many seconds before subsequent retries

This is the amount of time that RelayFax will wait between subsequent delivery attempts.

Auto format all cover page text to lines of this length

Placing a value in this control will cause text placed in the cover page's comments section to have line breaks inserted at the specified length. Setting this control to "0" will cause the text to appear exactly as it was typed by the user. If the text was composed without any line breaks, and it extended beyond the edge of the designated comments area, then it would be truncated.

Send Priority

Use this option to designate a send priority for all faxes to which this template is applied. You can set the value from 0-100. "0" is the highest priority, "50" is the normal, default value, and "100" is the lowest. Faxes are always sent in the order of their priority setting.


Send fax using modem on this specific port

Here you can restrict faxes to which this template is applied, to using the modem located on a specific port.

Dialing Options

Prefix outbound phone numbers longer than [xx] digits with [xx]

For outgoing faxes, you can have RelayFax automatically add a prefix to the called party's number. Prefixes may, for instance, be necessary to access a central office line, or to restrict the transmission of your Caller ID to the called party. RelayFax will, however, add the prefix to the number only if the number contains more digits than the amount specified here. If your fax device is connected to a PBX, the digit threshold can prevent the prefix from being dialed if the called number is an extension on the same PBX. Enter both the digit threshold and the prefix to be dialed into this option. Use "0" in the first box if you wish to add the prefix to all numbers dialed.

When specifying fax numbers for RelayFax to dial you can use "w" or "W" to cause RelayFax to wait for a subsequent dial tone. For example, "8w5551212" will dial 8, wait for the next dial tone, and then dial the remainder of the number. Similarly, the "%" character will insert a pause within the dialing process. For example, "8%5551212" will dial 8, pause, and then dial the rest of the number. The length of time during a pause is determined by modem S register settings.
