    Hello All:

    I have been doing research on getting an internet fax service.

    I currently have a free eFax account. Full version will work, but it
    is a bit pricey compared to some others such as Faxbetter.

    I will be a low volume user, and having a toll-free number which some
    offer does not matter.

    Any recommendations?

    First off, if you have, or can get, a dialup fax/modem you can use
    it to send faxes. Even if you don't use it for internet access.
    Unless you don't have a landline.

    To receive a fax, check if you have a voicemail service that
    can receive faxes. IIRC: Verizon Wireless e-mail can receive
    short faxes. Some VoIP phone services also can receive faxes.
    It totally beats me why traditional landline companies haven't
    been offering this service.

    The internet is rife with fax services, it's just a matter of finding

    I've been using Faxaway. $1 a month, outgoing is 11ยข per minute (U.S.).
    No charge for incoming. You'll get a number with a 206 area code. Much
    less expensive than Faxbetter.


    I find that it can take up to ten minutes for an outgoing FAX to be sent
    from their servers.

    Basically you want to put whatever you're sending into a .doc file,
    though other file formats are supported. They also have a free TIFF
    converter which is the format to use for sending graphics that works the
    best, but graphics inside a .doc file are also fine.

    It doesn't support non-U.S. character sets--you'll need to convert the
    document to a TIFF if you use those.

    How many outgoing pages per month? How many incoming pages per month? Do
    you have a landline?

    Have you seen any comparison sites such as this one

    Among the obvious advantages of all Internet fax services over traditional fax equipment, one is definitely low cost and reliable and I could recommend to all people

    Sfax provide an Internet fax service that is completely secure and its freedom plan starts at just $24/year, so is perfect for people that don't need to send lots of faxes per month:

    I would recommend checking out if you're looking for a reliable internet fax provider. I've been using their fax by email service for awhile now and I'm very happy with my choice. They let you choose your own dedicated local or toll-free number (toll free doesn't cost extra either) and the service is less than 6 bucks a month.

    In addition, the offer a 30 day free trial with zero setup fees so you can really try the service out before you pay for anything. All of my inbound faxes get delivered to my email as PDF files and I can send faxes straight from my email account by simply typing in the recipient's fax number in the address field. I know there are a lot of online fax providers out there, but based on my research I think FaxitFast offers the best value for the price.
