Hi.

I have XP, all-in-one printer and broadband (Pipex), how do I go about setting myself up to send and receive faxes?

You'll need a fax modem and fax software which will enable you to dial the recipients fax machine.
You cannot send a fax via broadband unless you use a third party email to fax converter.

"third party email to fax converter"????

Can you recommend one?

I'd be suprised if Pipex didn't do it

I also bought an all-in-one printer but one with fax facility. Not ideal, but it gets me over the fax/BB incompatibility. I'm surprised that someone's not come up with the idea of using the modem in an all-in-one to send faxes from a PC to which it is connected. Or has it already been done??
