Technical Summary This document describes the functional specification and the definition of the ENUM NAPTR record for IFax service. IFax is "Facsimile using Internet Mail". For this use, the DNS returns the email address of the referenced IFax system. This mechanism allows email-based fax communication to use telephone numbers, rather than requiring that the sender already know the recipient email address. Working Group Summary This document was reviewed by both the FAX and ENUM working groups. The FAX working group reached consensus on the document, and review by the ENUM working group was requested. Comments provided by the ENUM working group were received and incorporated to produce the document. Protocol Quality Scott Hollenbeck has reviewed the specification for the IESG.
