How does VisionLab (Canada)'s Application/Web to Fax work?
The first phase is to define the functionality that will be provided on the web site or from your application.
The implementation of this requirement is the next phase and can be done in many ways.
A common approach is to create a CGI script (Common Gateway Interface).
For each fax to be sent out, the following steps need to be implemented:
- create an e-mail message with the information to be sent included in the body or as an attachment, respecting the formats supported by the Web to Fax service. (For details see Programmer's Guide)
- For each e-mail message, include the destination fax number in the "To" header following one of the 2 prescribed formats: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
- Finally send out the e-mail messages, including any required controls.
