Schedule a fax to send later

You can schedule a black-and-white fax to be sent within the next 24 hours. This
enables you to send a black-and-white fax late in the evening, when phone lines are
not as busy or phone rates are lower, for example. The printer automatically sends
your fax at the specified time.
You can only schedule one fax to be sent at a time. You can continue to send faxes
normally, however, while a fax is scheduled.

NOTE: You can only send scheduled faxes in black-and-white.
