How many times does the VisionLab (Canada) network try to send my messages?
The VisionLab (Canada) network tries to send the broadcast fax to each recipient at least three times unless the number has a history of being incorrect or inaccessible. When every number on your list has already been tried for the job, you have the option of authorizing a re-send job for those recipients who did not receive the fax on the first attempt.
