sending Multiple documents in a single fax.

Is there a way to simulate an incoming fax?

We're switching our app dev from the REST Api directly to the .Net Client. Up to now, we've been sending actual faxes to do unit testing or for development, but we'd like to start doing som more automated testing and load testing. Is there an easy way to simulate receiving faxes, preferably lots of them, without having to actually send a fax?

Fax Status and Retry.

Once the fax gets submitted via the API, and the result is not Success, Error or In Progress, the fax transaction is dead at this point? Say the line is busy, is it up to the client to resend a new request to the API? There is no built in Retry scheme, that needs to be built at the client level? Can you confirm this statement?

Trying To Call SendFax() Returns EtherFaxResult "Invalid Or Missing File"

Fax Send with invalid number

Scenario: Testing invalid fax number response codes by faxing to the number 5 Expected: 400 status code with message telling me what field is bad and maybe a FaxResult type telling me InvalidOrMissingNumber (or 8) Actual: Receive 500 response with no detail, occasionally a 400 status code is returned but with no detail describing what went wrong. POST https://na.connect.etherfax.net/rest/3.0/api/outbox { "callerId": "1234567890", "dialNumber": "5", "faxImage": BASE_64_FILE_CONTENTS } There is inconsistency between the Http Status Code returned, and would be nice for some details regarding what went wrong.
