Sending a fax from Voipfone without a fax machine.

#1
We provide an email to fax service - see:

http://www.voipfone.co.uk/PB_Free_Fax_To_Email.php

But we are also often asked about the reverse - email to fax.
We currently do not offer the service & because fax is an old an ugly technology that doesn't work all that well with VoIP - but we do have a solution.

You need an old fashioned dial-up modem in your PC and if you wish to send a copy of a physical document (ie not one already in digital format like an email or word document) then you also need a scanner.

It uses Microsoft fax console and other software that you get with Windows. Follow the instruction here:

The simplest way of making the outbound connection is to plug it into a normal PSTN socket (unless you use cable, you must have at least one telephone line for your ADSL). However, it is possible to also send the fax through a VoIP ATA if you have one. To do so follow the instructions here:

When you set up your fax software enter a header which includes your Voipfone fax number so that any reply goes directly to your email.
