ECU Fax Server

The ECU fax server allows staff, faculty and departments to easily and securely send and receive documents directly from desktop and email. By utilizing this service, the need for a stand-alone manual fax machine is eliminated while paper, ink and other supplies are saved.

This service is available at a minimal monthly fee of $4 for a single user and $6 for a group account.

To request a fax account, submit the fax server account form. Report a problem or request support through the ECU Fax Server support ticket.
