I am using the Mac's fax function and that works just great. I would, however, like to make an Applescript that gets called from a Mail rule. For example, when the Subject is something like: "FAX:12345679", the rule should take the fax number from the subject and use it to fax the attachment via the fax-modem printer.

Is this possible?

  • Would you be using the same number, or set of phone numbers every time? – ruddfawcett Apr 19 '12 at 4:47
  • Ideally the number should be taken from the Subject. – Joseph Apr 19 '12 at 5:06
  • I'll see if I can can come up with something... – ruddfawcett Apr 19 '12 at 21:49
  • WOW That would be awesome! – Joseph Apr 20 '12 at 5:19

To answer your question, I don't think that there is a way to use AppleScript with the Mac fax function. I am able to create a script which grabs attachments, but I can't find a way to hook into the fax function, without using a 3rd party faxing app. Sorry, I thought there was a way.
