Documents sent via a telecopier or facsimile machine (FAX) typically use cover sheets with which to address and distinguish between one or more recipients. FAX technology currently stores a document electronically but forwards the document over a computer network by manually acquiring a computer address corresponding to the recipient denoted on the cover sheet of the document. Using a cover sheet is an end-to-end user convention and not part of any FAX protocol.
