Recently, the internet was still a new and novel idea and email was an exciting feature. Nowadays, email has become so prevalent – with people accessing their email from not only their PCs, but their cellphones too – that it’s almost difficult to remember how individuals and companies communicated and sent documents without it.

The internet is ever evolving, and its features are becoming more advanced as they integrate further into our lives. Faxing has also evolved from the bulky traditional fax machines of yesteryear, to quick and easy fax to email. If the idea of fax to email is foreign to you and you are curious about it, the following will help you.

Fax to email allows users to send and receive fax documents in their email account. Most online fax services allow users to make the choice between receiving and sending faxes into their email account, or using the online faxing service provider’s software. The latter is usually called online faxing, and the former fax to email. Most users opt for fax to email instead of online faxing because it allows them the convenience of being able to access their faxes from any computer in the world, as long as it has internet access.

Fax to email allows users to open faxes in a number of different formats, the most common being PDF files. When sending a fax, all you have to do is compose a message and type in the recipient’s fax number. When others send you a fax, they will still send it to a normal fax number, and your fax to email service provider will translate that into an electronic format.

Having fax to email means you can access your faxes from anywhere in the world. If you have a smart phone with email and PDF capabilities, you can even access your faxes from your phone. Fax to email allows you freedom, mobility and convenience. It saves space that could otherwise be taken up by bulky fax equipment, supplies and filing cabinets. In today’s competitive business world, you can’t afford to be left behind.
