What is fax from email?

So, you have been asked to send confirmation of your latest purchase by fax. The only problem is that the last fax machine you saw was covered in dust in the back of your parents’ garage. In this day and age fax machines are still often used, but can be difficult to find if you are not in an office. Well, fear not.

Fax to email is a service which essentially turns your computer into a fax machine. Using this service you are able to send faxes directly from email. And landlines are no longer a necessity, you can send faxes wirelessly. Even in the golden age of fax machines, sending faxes wasn’t this easy.
