Product and Upgrade FAQ

  • Do I need Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express to run RingCentral SmartFax?
    No, you don't. RingCentral SmartFax will work fine without Outlook or Outlook Express.

    Yes! SmartFax 2002 is the only product in its class that is integrated with Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express.

  • I need answering machine capabilities. Will RingCentral SmartFax do it?
    No, for that you need RingCentral PhoneWorks and a voice enabled modem. Please see PhoneWorks 2002 Product FAQ for more details.

  • I want to make calls from my PC/laptop. Will RingCentral SmartFax do it?
    No, for that you need RingCentral PhoneWorks and a speakerphone modem, compatible with it. See RingCentral PhoneWorks 2002 Product FAQ for more details.

  • Does RingCentral SmartFax support more than one phone line?
    RingCentral SmartFax supports only 1 line/1 modem.

  • Why is RingCentral SmartFax better than my OEM version?
    - Integration with Microsoft Outlook 97,98,2000,XP and Outlook Express, which means:
       - fax and e-mail in one universal mailbox
       - share Outlook/Outlook Express Contacts and Personal Address Book with RingCentral
    - More flexible Notification and Forwarding Rules: for example, you can forward faxes to e-mail
    - Alphanumeric pager support: for example, you can forward e-mail messages to pager
    - New fax cover pages
    - Fax Editor lets you create your own cover pages and sign/annotate your faxes
    - Direct Technical Support from RingCentral, Inc.

  • Who bills me for long distance calls made from RingCentral SmartFax?
    Your phone company. Using RingCentral SmartFax to make calls is no different than using a regular phone / fax machine.

  • Is there any way of getting voice messages/faxes while I'm online or have my computer turned off?
    You can be notified of incoming phone calls, and get voice mail messages while online and when your computer is not running if you sign up to our BuzMe service (www.buzme.com).

  • Can I use RingCentral software with a Cable/DSL modem?
    Technically, Cable/DSL adapters are not modems - from the PC's point of view they are network adapters. Thus, RingCentral does not (and cannot) work with them. DSL/Cable adapters connect to PC via Network card which carries high-speed traffic from/to your DSL/Cable box, which connects to the phone line or cable. Low speed traffic (telephone conversations, dialup connections) is carried by the regular modem, which should also be connected to the phone line. Even if you installed DSL or Cable adapter, to use RingCentral you still need to have regular data/fax or voice modem plugged in to the phone line.
