Automatic Answering – Definition

LAST UPDATE: March 2nd, 2019


Automatic answering is when a fax machine automatically answers a fax line when it rings.


Most fax machines are set to automatically answer the line when it rings, although most can be configured to answer manually.

Automatic answering is used in the majority of situations, as a fax can arrive at any time and someone may not be there to answer the fax.
