    Option to save an incoming facsimile to a specific directory, preferably including local network drive would be appreciated.

    Reasons
    • For local 3CX installation this is much more useful that resending delivered fax to an email server. Email only is really only sensible for hosted 3cx installations.
    • In coming faxes mostly need to end up in an incoming document directory, a fact recognised by modern physical fax machines.
    • While it is possible to achieve secure email / maintain privacy. The costs implicit in doing so reliably result in a poor compromise compared to simply saving the pdf directly on a local network directory.
    • 3CX limitation to only email received fax mean it fails to capitalise on its local installation advantage over a generic hosted fax solution
