I have a samsung clx3160fn which actually has the capability to receive faxes as well as send them. I want to know is there a way to get the received fax in the PC instead of printing it out. Any help will be appriciated. Thanks.
Thanks Vince, I solved the issue and you are 100% right. From the web based module you can set it up. though you need to know your SMTP settings for that. I configured it and its working the way I wanted it to work. Appriciate your help.

Re: Receiving Fax on PC
These do have the option of emailing you a received fax. I use this feature myself so I can get my faxes even if out of the office. if you go to the web interface you can set this up. you will need to know the email settings for your email account such as the SMTP server...

You cannot receive fax using this printer, because this printer doesn't support fax sending/receiving. Only fax supported printers can receive fax documents. You will know if a printer is fax support if you see a Fax button there or if you can see a numpad buttons where you can dial numbers.
Yes you can, but not without the aid of your computer. You will need a dial-up modem installed with a phone line connected, and some fax software. Then the actual fax sending and receiving is done by the computer, while the all-in-one just serves to scan material for sending and as a printer for receiving. But the printer can't be used as a fax machine all by itself.
Faxes machines are capable sending and receiving data documents. First the sender sends to another machine details providing the return addresses. Requetsing the receive to reply the to the fax also requires providing fax numbers.
Are you able to receive faxes from others from the same location, if not just ask her to consult her service provider and ask to get the no checked of yours why is it that you she is not able to send fax to you only as your fax machine is capable of sending and receiving fax from others it should be dsome issue with her service provider.
If it was your All-In-One printer thrn you should not have received faxes from any one, not a specific number.
Faxes fail intermittently or with only one fax number
If static is present on the phone line, fax communication may fail. Have the phone line checked and serviced by the telephone company (or have the other party check their line). Phone line quality is the most common reason for intermittent fax failures. Some older locations and buildings have inadequate phone system wiring.
If you are trying to send a color fax and it fails, try sending the same machine a black and white fax. Normally the fax will detect that the other fax is not color capable and will offer you the option to send the fax as black and white but this might not always be the case. Do not send color faxes unless you know the other fax machine is capable of receiving color faxes.
Check the phone cable from the wall jack to the fax. It should not be coiled or longer than necessary. Coiling the cable can cause cross talk or echo on the line. Signal strength and quality can be lost with long cables.
Make sure the phone cable routing (and any cables not plugged into the same jack but sharing the same line) is not near any electrical appliances (electric motors, fans, kitchen appliances, or televisions). Many of these devices do not have sufficient electrical shielding and can induce electro-magnetic force (EMF) onto the phone line. Computers are usually shielded sufficiently and do not cause this problem.
Do not use a call-waiting service on the same line connected to the fax machine. The click sound caused by an incoming call can cause the fax to fail.
You can block certain faxes on some models. Verify that the telephone number of the sending fax is not blocked in the faxing software. This is usually located in the Fax History.
