Fax from a Sharp MFP

You are able to send a fax to local, long distance, and international fax numbers from multi-functioning printers (MFPs). 

There currently are no direct charges for printing faxes or for long distance calls associated with a fax job.

How to Send a Fax

  1. Log in to the MFP by swiping your ID or using the built-in keyboard.
  2. If prompted, choose your account.
  3. You see the home screen.  Swipe left or press the arrow to go to Page 2.

  6. Use the keyboard to enter your fax number, then “@fax.stthomas.edu”. Click OK.  Use the pre-defined button that will add “fax.stthomas.edu” for you.
    Note: In this example, I am sending a fax internally to another St. Thomas area, so I used the 5-digit campus extension. 

    For on-campus numbers, enter the 5-digit extension: eg 12345@fax.stthomas.edu

    For local numbers, enter ‘8’ followed by the area code and number: eg. 86515558888@fax.stthomas.edu
    Note: Local numbers include area codes 612, 651, 763, and 952.

    For long distance, enter ‘8’ followed by '1' followed by the area code and number: eg. 815557777777@fax.stthomas.edu
