Question
Dear ZZ

Is it mandatory to have a color fax machine at the receiving end to receive the color fax?

If yes, is it possible technically by any way that the receiving fax machine will still receive the color fax ?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Yes, by all means the ordinary fax machine will receive all fax messages that are in the standardized fax message format. If the receiving machine does not support color then it will print the fax message in Black/ White.

Most fax machines will automatically print the color fax but in Black/white.

A Black/White receiving fax machine cannot be upgraded to print in color.  To do would be much more costly than the purchase of a new color fax machine.  Also, there are PC software packages that will allow reception of any fax and print out on the PC printer straight forwardly.

Have a good day.
