The Fully Qualified Domain Name, w27106.wpo.cso.niu.edu will always remain the same.

You may also create a CallPilot Fax address book within GroupWise.  Distribution lists can be created as well.  Contact ITS Communications for more information at 1-815-753-0963.

Receiving Faxes

You can also receive faxes in your CallPilot folder in GroupWise.  This can be done whether or not you have a unique fax number.  If you have an assigned CallPilot fax number, callers simply fax to that number and it appears in your CallPilot folder in GroupWise.

If you do not have an assigned fax number, but your client profile includes faxing capabilities, callers can send faxes to your desktop using the Express Fax Messaging number.  Use this format on the fax machine:

  • Dial 753-1889.
  • Press the pause key.
  • Enter the 7-digit CallPilot mailbox number, then press #.
  • Press Send.
  • For example, 7531889 pause 7535803#Send.
