If you are one of the many people who has become more and more frustrated with your fax machine, it may be time to make a change to online fax services. But the reason so many people do not make this change is that they assume that they will never be able to learn how to fax online. In fact, this process is quite easy and can be learnt in just a few minutes.

Online Fax Service

Before you learn how to fax using the internet, you will need an online fax number. This number will be given to you by the service provider you decide to use, either as part of your free trial or as a part of your contract. Once you have this number, you will be able to send and receive faxes straight to your inbox.

Once you are set up and ready to go, know that simply by giving out the number allocated to you, you will be able to receive faxes straight to your inbox. There is no effort on your part. Learning how to fax to others is just as easy. First, you need to identify the document you intend to send. If it exists on your computer as a digital document, you simply need to attach it to an email. If you have the document printed out, you will need to scan it into your computer. You will then need to decide on the format of the document, that is, either PDF, tiff or jpg file.

Once your document is in a digital format, you need to attach it to a new email. You will then need to add in the recipient’s fax number to the address bar of the email. If you have more than one recipient, you can add in more than one number. The document will be sent through the servers of your service provider and delivered to the intended recipient. Learning how to fax is very easy, and will certainly reduce the amount of time spent trying to fax documents through on your physical fax machine, or waiting for a fax to come to you.
