Email to Fax is a simple and effective way to send faxes. Its as easy as sending an email - we convert the email into a fax and deliver it to the fax machine.
Faxes can be pre-modified, pre-formatted, watermarked, signed, mail merged, fax blasted, cover pages can be added; the options are endless.
Email to Fax explained:
Hosted solution, no hardware required. You can send faxes electronically via the internet (email). You don't need a physical fax line, phone line or even a physical location! All actual faxing is handled by our server farm.
You can send faxes by addressing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and attaching a document, PDF or image. See the Email-to-Fax Guide to learn more.
