If you go to the Tiscali website click here you can sign up for a fax to e-mail service which is free to use.

You are asigned an individual 0871-xxxxxx number and senders use this to send you a fax, which you receive in e-mail form and at no cost to yourself. No need to have the computer switched on at all, particularly important if you have dialup only.

Tiscali takes a small proportion of the cost of the call to make its return.

I used to use the FaxMe service but this ceased about 12 months or so ago and which worked on the same principle.

Re fax programs: Anyone who has a Win95 or 98 CD-ROM can install wms.exe and awfax.exe, which will allow you to compose standard or individual fax pages ready to send; Windows Messaging Service keeps a full record in the same style as Outlook Express, so is easy to use if you are familiar with OE.
