From version 6.20 onwards, Zarafa has fax server support. This means that you can send an email to a fax address. The MTA will reroute all emails for a specific fax domain to your fax server.

Make sure you already have a fax server running. This manual is tested with Postfix and Hylafax. For more information about configuring Hylafax, see [1].

To configure Zarafa for fax support, please follow these steps:

  • Add to the spooler configuration the option: fax_domain = ...

All email send to a fax number will get the configured domain as domain part, so FAX:+31152616776 will be rewritten to +31152616776@fax.zarafa.com

  • Add to the Postfix main.cf the options:
transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
fax_destination_recipient_limit = 1
  • In the transport map you need to specify the different domains with the correct transport provider.
@fax.zarafa.com fax:ip_fax_server
@zarafa.com zarafa:
  • In the master.cf you will need to specify the fax transport provider.
fax unix - n n - 1 pipe flags= user=fax argv=/usr/bin/faxmail -d -n ${user}
  • Create the transport hashmap with the command: postmap /etc/postfix/transport
  • Restart Postfix to activate all changes


You can now send an email to a fax number using Outlook. Please check the mail.log for debugging.
