Document Conversion

GFI FaxMaker enables users to send faxes by attaching content to an email. GFI FaxMaker automatically converts the attachment to fax. For this purpose, a built-in conversion engine is included for PDF, HTML, PNG, GIF, JPG, RTF and TXT files.


Microsoft® Office® 2007 or higher is required on the GFI FaxMaker server to convert Microsoft® Office® files, such as DOCX and XLSX files.
