Authorising an email domain for fax sending (wildcard) 

You can configure all email addresses within your business domain as an authorised sender .  To do so, enter an asterisk (*), then the @ symbol and your domain name in the "Authorised Email AddressFor example, if you want everyone with a "yourdomain.com.au" email address to send fax via your GoFax account, you would include  *@yourdomain.com.au  in the "Authorised Email Address" field.  This is otherwise known as a “wildcard domain”.     
IMPORTANT:  Adding a wildcard  domain allows anyone whose email client "From:" settings include that domain to send via your service. Only set this if you are certain that everyone with access to that domain for email sending is authorised to send faxes via your account on our system.  DO NOT use a public email domain.

Auto delete of fax pages sent

By default, GoFax securely stores the page content of each fax sent. There is an optional feature called "Auto Delete Fax Pages". When activated per sender, GoFax w ill  delete the page content of all faxes sent from an authorised sender immediately after confirmation of send success or failure. 
How to activate "Auto Delete Fax Pages":
  1. Click "Edit" in the authorised sender’s line item
  2. Select "Auto Delete Fax Pages"
  3. Click "Save".
Please note: Deleting fax pages does not delete the sending record (meta data) for the fax from your account’s log. We are legally required to maintain a log of all faxes sent for a twelve-month period. 
Setting "Auto Delete Fax Pages" will only delete fax page content sent from the configured authorised email sender after the auto delete function was set up.
