Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax
I would like to use this machine to be a phone/answering machine ie 1 to leave a message 2 for fax
No, this machine does not have a message center. the only way is to hook an actual answering machine up to the "ext" jack on your fax. set fax to answer on 1-2 rings, and set your answering machine to answer on at least 4 rings, and set your fax receive mode to "tad" which means telephone answering device.

Solution for Fax1360, if this does not work please let me know as this process should be the same.
Recording an outgoing message (OGM) on an external TAD 7
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up the ways to handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
a Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message. (This allows your machine time to listen for the fax CNG tones of automatic transmissions before they stop.)
b Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
c End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code for people sending manual faxes. For example: 'After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing *5 1 and Start.'
Recommendation: recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second silence because the machine cannot hear fax tones over a resonant or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but if your machine has trouble receiving, then you must rerecord the OGM to include it.
