To configure incoming fax routing methods:-

1.Open Fax Service Manager.
2.In the left pane, double-click Devices and Providers, double-click Devices, double-click the device you want to configure, and then click Incoming Methods.
3.In the right pane, right-click the method you want to configure, click Properties, and then do the following:
  a. To configure the Store in a folder method, click the Store in Folder tab, and then either type the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path of the folder (\\<network location>\<folder>), or click Browse to select the folder.
  b. To configure the Route through e-mail method, click the E-mail tab, and then type the e-mail address to which you want incoming faxes to be delivered.
  c. For the Print method, click the Print tab, and then type the UNC path of the printer for incoming faxes.
4.Once the incoming methods have been configured, in the details pane, right-click each method, and then click Enable to enable the method, or Disable to disable it. (You may want to disable a method if, for example, you want to temporarily disable printing because the printer is not working and faxes are getting stuck in the inbox.)
