When configuring FaxMaker for use with Office 365 there are many variables outside of FaxMaker that need to be configured. There are different levels/tiers of Office 365 and different firewalls that are in use for the protection of the local network. For these reasons, there is no specific set of steps/rules to follow to be able to set this up. What is listed below is a list of items that once completed will allow communication between Office 365 and FaxMaker. These are general steps that must be done by someone with knowledge of your system:
- Change domain from faxmaker.com to fax.domain.com in this example fax.EXAMPLE.com. This is covered in the Modifying the Default Fax and SMS Domain Names article.
- In the Office 365 admin portal, add your domain that was used in step 1 and ensure it is non-authoritative.
- In DNS create an A record pointing fax.EXAMPLE.com to an external IP address of the local network.
- Create a send connector in Office 365 to point to the external IP address of the local network. Ensure the connector validates.

- On the Mail tab, select Manage mailbox permissions.

- Select Add permissions, then choose the name of the user or users that you want to allow to send an email on behalf of this mailbox.
- Select Save.
