Note the distinction between this and GET/fax/message that returns information for a single fax.

The GET/fax/messages method returns a list of fax documents received or sent for a particular mailbox. 

Each listed fax document includes the following fields of information:

  • ID - a particular identification number identifying the fax document. This is important for the get/fax/message method, that returns details about a particular fax.
  • time - the time the message was recorded (in Unix timestamp format).
  • pages - number of pages for the fax document
  • mailbox - the mailbox containing the fax document (same as the one specified in the API request).
  • called - the destination phone number of the fax.
  • caller - the phone number of the sender of the fax.
  • callerid - the caller ID associated to the sender of the fax.
  • name - the file name of the fax document - this name is generated by the system by combining several of the above fields - time, pages, mailbox, called, caller, and callerid.
  • dir - the directory where the document is stored - either INBOX or SENT. This also indicates if the fax inbound or outbound in direction.
  • sent_by - a name or ID (such as an extension) of the user who sent the document.
  • read_by - a name or ID (such as an extension) of the user who read the message, if any.
  • seen - A Boolean response. A value of 1 indicates that the message was seen (read) by someone. A value of 0 indicates it has not.
