Title : ENUM, E.164, and Internet Fax
Author(s) : A. Gallant
Filename : draft-gallant-enum-ifax-00.txt
Pages : 6
Date : 20-Nov-00
E.164 numbers are often used for fax addresses. Internet fax
provides store-and-forward (T.37) and real-time (T.38) modes.
Subscribers could use ENUM to store Internet fax preferences in DNS
under their fax numbers. Network devices could then query DNS to
retrieve that information. An example is subscriber preferences for
receiving faxes via Internet mail or SIP delivery. Further work on
ENUM for Internet Fax is indicated, one example being H.323
delivery. Policy aspects are out of scope of this draft. This

exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
