Frequently Asked Questions
Can I keep my existing fax number with XMediusFAX?
Yes, you can! If you currently have an existing fax number for an analog fax line, you can submit a request to the help desk and ITS will create a ticket with AT&T to have your existing fax number ported over so that it can be used with the XMediusFAX online fax program.
I don't have an existing analog fax line. Can I still use the XMediusFAX software?
