Abstract: An image forming apparatus receives a FAX, a FAX processor performs a FAX reception processing, and acquires reception information (step S11). An information generator determines whether there is reception notification setting information (step S12). If there is a notification setting, the information generator proceeds to step S13, and generates reception notification information. An information notification processor transmits the reception information to a chat server via a network on the basis of the notification setting information (step S14). Next, the information notification processor determines reception notification setting information 124 related to image transfer (step S15). If image transfer is enabled, the information notification processor proceeds to step S16, performs an image transfer process, generates document image information, and transmits same to the chat server.
