Schedule a fax to send later

You can schedule a black-and-white fax to be sent within the next 24 hours. This
enables you to send a black-and-white fax late in the evening, when phone lines are
not as busy or phone rates are lower, for example. The device automatically sends
your fax at the specified time.
You can schedule only one fax to be sent at a time. You can continue to send faxes
normally, however, while a fax is scheduled.

NOTE: You can send only black and white faxes because of memory limitations.

To schedule a fax from the device control panel
