The evolution of communication technology has given us so much, reflect on what information sharing used to be like and look at it now. Communicating with one another doesn’t take weeks and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Take online faxing; faxing has never been so easy or cost effective!
Unlike traditional fax machines that take forever to send a fax, cost a bundle, and destroy the environment, email to fax is quick and easy to use. Not to mention cost effective. Who doesn’t like affordability?
With the multitude of service providers one should always do research before signing up with an online service provider.
Before signing up it is advisable to talk to the service providers support division for two reasons:
- Make sure your service provider is capable of providing the type of service you require. (That would be us, just saying…)
- Find out about the type of programmes you may need in order to send and receive faxes via your e-mail client. Let me state here that FaxFX requires no added installations. If you have access to the internet and have an active email address, you are good to go. We have your best interest in mind.
When you have selected a fax to email service provider it is important that you create an e-mail account or use your existing account. Once your e-mail account has been setup you will receive an online fax number, this number must be given to any person wishing to send you an online fax!
How to send a fax via email:
Open your e-mail client program.
Select create a new mail button.
Enter the fax number of the recipient in the “To” field.
Type your message in the “body” of the email or alternatively add an attachment. Keep in mind you must have a digital copy of the attachment you want to send
Once you are happy with the contents of the fax you may press “send”.
If you know how to send an email you will have no problem with sending a fax via email they are virtually the same!
