Internet Fax explained:

Any faxes sent to your fax number are collected by TNZ Fax, converted into a PDF or TIF document, and emailed to you. You do not need a physical fax machine or telephone line - TNZ handles this!

You can send faxes by addressing an email to and attaching a document, PDF or image. See the Email-to-Fax Guide to learn more.
