Some frequently asked questions… answered.
Fax to email is a revolutionary service that has brought faxing into the digital age. It allows all your fax communication to be handled through your email account, making faxing easier than it has ever been. If you’re new to this service, or simply interested in it, you might have a few questions regarding some of the slightly more technical points. The following answers might shed some light on some of your questions.
How does it work?
All you need to do is sign up with an active email account, and you’re ready to go. Your incoming faxes will appear in your email inbox, and arrive completely free of charge. This is great for archiving your faxes, and makes your fax communication portable, which is excellent if you are on the move.
A handy tool for sending faxes is the fax printer, available on the FaxFX website. This allows you to send faxes from any program that allows printing. It also gives you a preview of your fax and allows you to send multiple documents simultaneously.
Can I use my existing fax line for this?
Yes, absolutely. Your current fax number can be used to receive online faxes with call forwarding, arranged through your telephone service provider.
What if I lose my number?
If this happens you can reset your number by registering on the FaxFX website again. Alternatively, you can reset your password, or contact the helpful people at FaxFX and ask them to reactivate your account.
What if I’m out of the country?
Being abroad is not an issue at all. Sending and receiving faxes is as simple as logging into your email account. You just need internet access and a program that can read .pdf format.
Is there a limit on free fax numbers?
No, there is no limit. Each number must have its own email account, so you may have as many fax numbers as you do email accounts. Companies may register all their addresses at once – FaxFX caters for multiple signups.
Fax to email makes your fax communication much simpler and far more convenient. If you are new to this service or interested in using it, hopefully the above sheds some light on your questions.
