How to Use Fax to Email Software To Receive a Fax Through the Internet

Fax to Email software is a great aid when it comes to save time and money, yet not all people try it because they don’t understand how this works and end p complicating things in their heads.

The name fax to email, implies a conversion of a document. Most fax machines use the TIFF format when sending and receiving documents so in order to receive a fax as an email, the faxing program needs to convert the TIFF file to a smaller file – to be attached on an email.

To make things easy, fax to email software doesn’t need you to take care of the conversion manually. You just have to setup the different parameters in the configuration screen.

Next time someone sends a fax to you, they won’t have to do something special to get the document delivered. In fact, they won’t notice at all if you are using software or a machine. They conversion will take place all by itself and the document will be delivered safely to your email address.

In the same way, if you plan to fax a document, this document (no matter if it is on a jpg, doc or pdf format), will in turn be converted to a TIFF format so everyone can receive the fax on a fax machine, software or service.

As you see, receiving a fax through the Internet doesn’t have to be complicated at all. In fact, it is much simpler than faxing a document using a fax machine – not to mention that you save on supplies, maintenance and of course, the cost of the machine itself!
