Jeremy Hello,

Most, if not all, internet fax providers will enable you to send and receive faxes using nothing more than an email program. See our list of internet fax services.

This means that it doesn't matter what type of computer you use for email - whether desktop, server, pda, pocket pc - you will be able to use these providers for faxing.

Here's how it works: when you need to send a fax, you create a new email message, and address it in a certain way (depending on the specific provider). You then put your message in the body of the email and/or in an attachment, and send it off. The provider receives your email and faxes it to your required destination.

For receiving faxes, a provider will give you a new telephone number. Faxes arriving at this number get forwarded to your email as attachments - usually TIFF or PDF.

Note that nothing described above is dependent on the type of computer you use.

When you've selected a provider and started faxing - why don't you share your experience with this forum? :)
