    Can anyone advise please ...

    Someone asked me if they could send me a fax but I can't receive a fax as I
    don't own a fax machine.

    However, I do own a PC and run Microsoft Outlook.

    Please forgive me if I am asking a silly question but is it possible for
    someone to send a fax from a standard fax machine to my PC so I can read the

    If so, how can it be achieved. Do I need some special software or anything?

    We are supposed to GUESS what operating system you use or, if it is
    Windows, WHICH version of Windows? Windows 2000/XP has a Fax Service
    that you can use to send and receive faxes provided you have a
    fax-capable analog modem. Start -> Programs -> Accessories ->

    I prefer not to have the Fax Service answer all my incoming telephone
    calls and I'm not going to pay for a separate phone line just for faxing
    which I do maybe once a year. The only time I get stuck faxing is with
    the government since everyone else has gone to e-mail. Instead I use
    the free eFax service to receiving inbound faxes via e-mail and I use
    the Fax Service to send outbound faxes using my data/fax modem. Don't
    bother installing any of the eFax software. You won't need it.

    Start -> Help and Support
    Search on "fax".
