Alternatively, typing "receive fax" into the search box under the Help  
menu heading yields the following:


Receiving faxes
You can receive a fax on your computer, and then save it to disk,  
email it to someone, or print it. You?ll be able to receive faxes even  
if you aren?t around and aren?t logged in to your computer.

To receive faxes, your computer must not be in sleep mode and must be  
connected to an open phone line. No one can be using the phone line to  
connect to the Internet or make a call.

Your computer can still receive faxes automatically when the login  
window is displayed.

To set up your Mac to receive faxes:

Choose Apple menu > System Preferences and click Print & Fax.

Select the fax modem in the Printers list.

Type your fax number in the Fax Number field.

This is used to identify your computer when you send or receive a fax.

If you want to control your computer?s fax functions from the menu  
bar, select ?Show fax status in menu bar.?

If you don?t want to receive faxes automatically, you must select this  
option. If you receive faxes automatically, you may want to select  
this option so you can view status information more easily.

Click Receive Options.

Select ?Receive faxes on this computer,? and choose the number of  
rings before your computer answers a fax.

If you want to receive faxes automatically, make sure your computer  
answers the phone before any other device that may be connected to it,  
such as a phone answering machine.

If you don?t want to receive faxes automatically, set the number of  
rings to the highest number possible, and use the Fax status menu to  
receive faxes manually.

Choose what to do with the fax after it arrives.

You can save it as an image file, email it, and print it to a printer.

To receive a fax manually, wait for the phone to ring, and choose  
Answer Now from the Fax status menu.
