I have a ricoh 4420NF. it USED to forward faxes

I have a ricoh 4420NF. it USED to forward faxes to my email in .pdf format. i made some changes, ONLY to the name of the printer (so i thought) but now, everything is normal except that it now forwards me faxed in .TIF format, which my users hate. i found a switch to change whether it SCANS to a .pdf for emailing me, but i cant find any LISTED switch setting that controls what format attachments are made in for incoming faxes. ive checked all through the paper users manual, and the downloaded manual from Ricoh... no luck... tell me what switch controls format of email forwarding for incoming faxes and ill go from there. thanks

SOURCE: trying to forward incoming faxes

The two most likely problems preventing you from forwarding your faxes are:

1. There is a problem with your DNS server translating the SMTP server name. Instead of typing in the server's name ( try typing in its IP address. If the problem lies with DNS, that should correct it.

2. The Linksys router may be blocking port 25. Go into the router's configuration settings and open an exception for port 25, or enable port forwarding for that specific port.

Did either of these steps solve your problem?

Fax forword ricoh mp171

Print documents received and forward to a specified end receiver. This is useful if, for example, you are visiting another office and would like a copy of your documents to be sent to that office.
You can also specify a "folder" as the forwarding destination.
  • To use this function, set [Forwarding] under [Administrator Tools] to [On].
  • The Forwarding function does not forward documents received with Memory Lock.
  • You can select end receivers only from among destinations programmed in the Address Book. You cannot specify programmed transfer stations as end receivers.
A fax number, e-mail address, IP-Fax destination, and folder can be set as the forwarding destination.
When you wish to change the end receivers depending on the senders, specify the end receivers by the senders, at "Program Special Sender". Documents not received from specified senders are sent to the destination specified in this function. For details about programming special sender, see "Program Special Sender".
You can set whether or not to print the forwarded documents on this machine in "Parameter Setting" (switch 11, bit 6). See "Parameter Settings".
Deleting a destination specified as a forward destination from the destination list causes the settings of the forward destination to be deleted, so they must be registered again. When a destination is changed, a document is transmitted to the new destination. If there is no destination of the specified type, you can set which destination to be used as an alternative destination in "Parameter Setting" (switch 32, bit 0). See "Parameter Settings".
You can program one of the User Function keys with operations for this function. See "General Settings/Adjust".
If you have specified a folder for forwarding, you can specify the file format used for forwarding in "Parameter Setting" (switch 21, bit 3). See "Parameter Settings".
User Parameters (switch 37, bit 4) on the Fax Features menu allows you to include the sender's name in the names of files sent to folders. However, garbling of the file name and data loss can result if the receiver's operating system cannot accept certain characters in file names. To prevent this, use User Parameters (switch 37, bit 5) to limit the file names to plain characters only. If you limit file names to plain characters only but errors still occur, disable display of the sender's name in the file name of documents forwarded to folders. For details, see "Parameter Settings".
Using the parameter setting (switches 38 and 39), you can specify the maximum number of resends that the machine attempts if it fails to forward a fax (including faxes from special senders) to a folder destination, and the interval between the resend attempts.
