how to FAX with vista Home Premium

  PhiltheFragger 13:34 20 Jan 2009

Do I need a fax machine or a printer/scanner/copier/fax to be able to send & receive faxes.

I have a standard print/scan/copier and broadband via BT ADSL

I can put in a 56K pci fax modem if necessary.

Is there anything within windows or some cheap fax emulation software

any help gratefully received

Sadly it seems that Vista hasn't built on the Windows feature of providing excellent fax utilities.

However, if you are prepared to use a 56k fax/modem, apparently this free offering will do what you require (but I can't vouch for it):

If you buy a fax modem, it'll almost certainly have faxing software included with it.
