Sending Fax by computer.

  mgmcc 09:49 15 Dec 2011

If you want to send and receive faxes regularly, the PC needs a dialup "faxmodem" of the type widely used before broadband. These are available as USB devices and your version of Windows may already have fax capability built in.

Fax cannot be sent directly with a broadband modem because it runs as a dialled phone call from one fax machine (or PC emulating a fax machine) to another, not via the internet.

If you do need to send via the internet, you need to use a web-based service that will accept your fax message and then send it to a conventional fax machine.
