When acting as the on-ramp gateway, the Cisco gateway receives faxes from end users, converts them into TIFF files, creates standard MIME e-mail messages, attaches the TIFF files to the e-mail messages, and forwards the fax-mail messages to the designated SMTP server for storage.

The gateway uses the sending MTA and dial peers to complete these tasks. The sending MTA, which is the Cisco gateway, defines delivery parameters associated with the e-mail message to which the fax TIFF file is attached. The delivery parameters include defining a return e-mail path or designating a destination mail server.
