Send & Receive Faxes Through Email
Wish you can send and receive faxes through email? Now you can! There's a web site that offers this service for $10/month (or $100/yr if you pay annually).
This may sound like a lot of money to some ... but when you consider the fact that you no longer need a fax machine, second line, or have to pay for ink and paper, the fee sounds pretty reasonable.
Most home users don't fax enough enough to warrant the cost. But folks running a small business may want to take a look at this service (especially if you're running the business the from your home).
Although email is popular, many people still rely on faxing as a means of communication. That's because they have fax machines instead of scanners and it's quicker and easier to fax something than to scan it into the computer and email it. Faxing is also more secure than emailing. So the need to send and receive faxes won't be going away any time soon.
Many small businesses don't currently offer faxing because of the expense (cost of fax machines, second lines, ink, paper, etc.). This is a great alternative for these people. Another advantage of using a service like MyFax.com is that because you can receive faxes via email, you don't have to be in the office to receive and read your faxes. You can read them on your cell phone (if you pay for internet service) while you're out and and about. So you don't have to worry about missing an important fax.
Many of my clients have asked how they can send and receive faxes through email, and until now, I didn't have a solution for them. If this is something, you'd like to do, check out MyFax.com - Faxing Simplified, Anytime, Anywhere! Get a MyFax Number.
