Fax Thru Email™ is a Fax over IP service that enables you to send and receive fax messages over the Internet. The service is a Web-based application that lets you send fax messages from the service's Web browser interface or from any e-mail program. You are not required to download any software to use the Fax Thru Email service.
To receive faxes all you need is an e-mail account. Incoming faxes are sent to your e-mail address as file attachments in Portable Document Format (PDF). In order to open and view a PDF, you will need Adobe Acrobat or the FREE Acrobat Reader.
To send faxes, you need an e-mail account that allows you to send e-mail messages with file attachments or Internet access from which you can send fax messages directly from the Fax Thru Email service. Fax-Thru-Email is for US and Canada fax numbers only. It cannot connect to international fax numbers that require a country code.
