Configuring Faxing Email Addresses in MetroFax

After you create a MetroFax Account, you need to add at least one email address for sending faxes and one email address for receiving addresses. These can be the same address or different ones.

By default, whatever email you signed up with is set to send and receive faxes. To change this:

  1. Log in to Metrofax at Your username is 1 + your seven-digit MetroFax phone number—not the fax number your department uses, but the one MetroFax assigned you. Your password is the four-digit PIN you picked. MetroFax emailed this information to you.
  2. Once logged in, click on Update Account
