Abstract

Disclosed is a process that eliminates the need for a second password for fax mailbox implementations on electrophotographic multifunction printers. Currently, one password identifies the user while the second permits access to the user's mailbox. The flow chart illustrated in the accompanying figure shows the disclosed process by which an assigned fax mailbox belonging to a logged-on user automatically manipulates without having to enter a mailbox password.
