    Yes, 3CX can do this. Go to Incoming Rules->Add DID Rule. Choose the DID you want faxes sent to, then under "Destination for calls during office hours" click the drop down box and choose "Send FAX to" and underneath, choose the extension (email) you want the fax emailed to.

    Sorry I made a mistake, you want to send incoming calls to the DID to the fax server (ext 888), you can modify the email address of the fax server in Settings->FAX Server

    Please note that you can send the Fax to any extension you want that has a configured email address.
    No additional configuration to the FAX required.
    Just create an inbound rule for the DID that you want to use for FAX and point it to the extension you want.
