custom addresses#

When a user customizes the SMTP address of the faxbox, the user must also add a DNS entry to the domain. For example, if the user configured the SMTP address to be myfax.mydomain.tld, then the user would have to add the following DNS entry:

$ORIGIN mydomain.tld.
myfax       CNAME

if user has many faxboxes he can also add wildcards

$ORIGIN fax.mydomain.tld.
*           CNAME
