Free email to fax / fax to email service to replace ageing fax machine?

I just wanted to make people aware of a fantastic service I recently stumbled across online.

After adding up the cost of running a fax machine in my office (which is a considerable amount when you factor in line rental, paper, toner, breakdown/parts etc) I decided there must be a cheaper and easier alternative.

After a little googling I found www.faxtastic.co.uk which is a free service which allows a user to set up a free fax number (or use an existing one) so that faxes are instead sent to my email account as .PDF attachments, likewise I am able to send faxes to other fax numbers but from my email address instead.

I am currently using their free service as I do not send/receive many faxes, although they offer a paid service (only around £1 per month!) for users who send/receive faxes more regularly. The beauty of this system is that it can be set up in seconds by visiting their website, you can send test faxes without signing up.

Now I'm saving a small fortune by ditching my archaic fax machine and don't have to worry about my landline telephone number being engaged when sending/receiving faxes. I am aware that there are a number of similar services/websites out there, although www.faxtastic.co.uk seems to be the simplest, cheapest and best service all round.

Go to their site and check it out for yourself. I wish I'd known about these kind of services when I worked for the bank, would have saved me a great deal of time and money!
