How to Recieve a Fax Via Email

If you want to learn how to receive a fax via email, you have it pretty easy. Nowadays there are pretty great options to do it without breaking a sweat. If you have been reading my latest posts, you’ll know I am a big fan of Internet faxing services; they cut the need of having to install software on every single machine you intend to use for faxing, as they can be managed via Web. Now, fax to email software is also useful, and has some pros we’ve talked about.

To receive a fax via email you need to link your fax account to your email account. Upon signing up with a service, you’ll receive your own Internet fax number free of charge. Using this number you can receive faxes from everyone. Whenever someone sends you a fax they’ll just use this number, and the information will be converted so it arrives as an attachment to your e-mail in the format of your choice, usually a PDF.

There’s not really more to it, it is extremely simple. If you are still confused, you can use a free trial to get started, you’ll find a list of sites offering free trials at Fax Through Internet Services.

It's just the best ideea of using internet fax service. It saves both time and money. As long as you have a computer with internet access then you can send a fax. I use Popfax.com fax to email service and it's a pretty good one.

Yes, there is no doubt that it saves a lot of time and money to use the Internet fax service. However, I don't think it is a good choose when considering fax an vital document since you don't use your own fax number.
I am using this Fax Server for a long time. You can have a try if you wish.
