Is there such a thing as fax to email?
How can I get faxes sent to my email account?
I would also suggest http://www.popfax.com
Cheap, fast, convenient. And they have mobile apps and different discounts and so on.
Ye, you can send faxes to email. For this you don't even have to get a faxing machine or so on, you just need to have a doc you need to send and an account in faxing service. I would advice you popfax.com - they're comfortable and comparatively cheap. Well, I was using them for 2 years and continue using and I like them.
Faxzero.com allows you to send faxes for free.
K7.net allows you to receive faxes for free.
If you only occasionally need to send or receive a fax, and don't mind an ad on the cover sheet, these two are wonderful and all you will need.
If you have more regular or extensive fax needs, companies like eFax.com provide monthly service at a very reasonable cost.
Specifically, k7.net will give you a telephone number (in Washington State) that you can give to someone to send a fax to. You have to use it at least once within a day or two or it will disappear. Then it's good for 30 days.
A fax sent to that number will be emailed to the address you used when you registered for an account.
Many fax sites are trial... ;(
most services give only free trial...
I have been using eFax for years. I keep thinking about discontinuing it, but then another need for a fax pops up. Maybe next year will be time to say bye-bye to faxes :-)
I've had good success with RingCentral - $9.99/mo., send/receive from downloadable app or their website, print to fax from Word, etc., Faxes come into email as PDF attachments. http:\\www.ringcentral.com
If you have a corporate line with a digital PBX system, many corporate PBX systems can be configured to do such a software relay for you.
as Oron said you need third-party. free are only trials - here is 30 day for efax http://en.efax.com/?VID=49508
You need to use an internet fax service which supports this. For example, http://www.efax.co.uk/ . Most of these services are not free, although many offer a trial period or a (very) limited service. Also, make sure to choose a service which will have a phone number in the correct country, to save those who send you faxes the cost of international calls!
There are a number of services that you could use:
http://faxzero.com/ - Free 5 faxes a day
http://www.efax.com - 16.95 a month
http://www.myfax.com - 10.00 a month
http://www.maxemail.com - 24.95 a year for 100 pages a month, send faxes for 10 cents a page
http://www.unityfax.com/ - 5.99 a month
