Print fax automatically



  • Hi,

    we have a costumer who used to print their faxes automatically with Outlook.
    They want to have this feature now again in Kopano.

    Is that possible with a rule?
    If a new mail comes from fax@company.com, it will be put in a public folder readable by everyone in the company, and one user should have a rule to print it (mail + attachment) immediately, if logged in (I guess) and it has not been printed already.

    They are using the Deskapp on Windows, if that makes any difference.

    Thanks in advance,
    Roland.


  • Kopano

    Hi @rgsell ,

    I’d rather recommend to script this with python-kopano. Something along the lines of:

    • check if there are items in a folder
    • if there are print the first message
    • after the first message has been printed move it into a “done” folder (to prevent printing stuff twice)
    • continue

    oh and http://thinkbeforeprinting.org/get-the-message.php



  • Ok, thanks.
    That seems doable.

    And I’m completely with you: I think it’s nonsense.
