How To Fax To An Email Address

November 1, 2012 By In Fax, Fax to Email No Comment

Faxing has never been easier and quicker. This is because of the emergence of faxing through the internet. It allows you to send or receive a fax through an email address and no fax machines are required in order for this to happen. All you need is a reliable access to the internet and a valid email address and with these two things, you can register with a reliable internet faxing provider, such as Eco Fax and begin using this service.

Faxing to an email address only takes a few minutes. Due to the fact that you are not sending to a fax machine, you will not have to wait until the line is free in order for the fax to be delivered or have to deal with faulty telephone lines. The document will go straight into an email’s inbox without any delays.

It is important to note that when faxing to an email address, you are actually faxing to a fax number. When the fax to email account is set up, a fax number that is connected to the email address will be generated. It will be through that fax number that the email’s inbox will receive faxes.

If you are using a fax machine you simply have to enter the fax number you wish to send the document to. After being sent, the document will be converted into a format such as PDF and delivered as an attachment to the email’s inbox. The receiver can then simply retrieve the attachment and read the document sent to them via fax.

Faxing from one email to another is also possible. There is no longer the need for a fax machine as you can do all faxing between internet faxing accounts. In order to do this, you will still enter the fax number you want to send the document to as you would with a fax machine only that this time you are doing it through email. Instead of entering an email address, you will enter a fax number. The document is sent as an attachment to the other fax to email account.
