  2. Using Notepad or other suitable text editor, format each entry as follows:

First name,Last name,e-mail address





  1. Save the file as IMPORT.TXT.
  2. Launch the Zetafax configuration program (ZFSETUP.EXE) and navigate to "Users and user groups".
  3. Select "Email gateway users" and click "Refresh".

  1. Use the "." browse button to locate the import file created in 3 above. Enter in the "Import Domain Name" text box the mail domain your SMTP server services, and click "OK".
  2. Once the import is complete, highlight the users you wish to enable and follow the instructions on screen.
