Email to Fax @ 12:38 pm

Does anyone have a good email to fax service they recommend? I have no idea how to use Bow's fax machine and I need to send one out later today. I'm thinking about just signing up for an email to fax service and have them send it out.

Any suggestions?

no I don't. But a backup plan would be to go to a Kinkos and send from there. Sometimes the library will have one as well.

You could try something like efax.

They have a 30 day free trial.

If you get the model number of the machine, I can walk you through it. eFax and similar services tend to tag small ads and such onto faxes and aren't the most ideal. I know the machine is a Brother, and those tend to be pretty simple to operate.

Save that manual, on page 32 it goes through the faxing procedure.

Hope this helps. =)

Oh, for added sanity, ADF stands for automatic document feeder, the tray at the top of the machine (above the scanner bed).

I don't think this is going to work, it's not hooked up to a phone line. We don't have a land line, we use wireless only.

Well Bow had it working somehow before. We've never had a landline here.

Some services allow you to email documents and forward them as a fax, most likely a setup like that. Forgot about the whole no landline thing, sorry.

I'm thinking you had it working with VoIP and trickery?

I remember Faileas being versed in the arts of VoIP. Shall I tie him up and question him? (though this is not a quick fax sending solution, but it might work out for a long-term one)

inbound, maybe (i very vaguely recall one), outbound, no. I never really got that deep into it either. VOIP is useful. I hardly had to send or recieve faxes.
