This video discusses the Conversion Whitelist feature added in RightFax 10.5.

Hello welcome to the RightFax University Crash Course.

This video discusses the Conversion Whitelist feature added in RightFax 10.5.

RightFax 10.5 and later versions now have a conversion whitelist feature that lists the software applications and document file formats that can be converted to faxes by the built-in conversion engine on the RightFax server. These file types can be converted from their native format by sending as file attachments to a fax message or by using the Send To function in Windows.

Before conversion, RightFax checks the whitelist.txt file (in the RIGHTFAX/bin directory) to determine whether attachments should be converted to fax format or not. By default, this file
contains all supported file types.

To prevent a file type from converting, you can either delete the file type from whitelist.txt, or turn it into a comment by preceding the file type with a comma in
the whitelist.txt file.

There are a few items of note:

Conversions handled through PCL (Print-to-Fax) will always be processed, regardless of the white list contents.

Conversion of PDF attachments and Postscript requires the RightFax PDF Module.

If you have any questions or concerns about the fax conversion process or the use of the conversion white list feauture. or anything else in the world of faxing, get in touch with The Fax Guys--we are always happy to assist.

That's it for the conversion whitelist feature added to RightFax 10.5.

Thanks for watching.
