For years, the fax machine was a crucial appliance for every office. It allowed us to send paperwork more quickly than through the mail, but the internet and email quickly outpaced and eventually rendered the fax machine all but irrelevant. However, many modern businesses still rely on paperwork, and fax machines still have a role to play. Fax to email solutions can help organize the clutter.
How Does Fax to Email Work?
Today, email is by far the favored method of communication in the business world, but sending documents via email isn’t always viable or the preferred choice. With a fax-to-email service, you can use your email service to send documents to fax machines via an email message. Faxes arrive as PDF attachments that can be printed, saved, or forwarded just like any other document attachment.
To use fax-to-email, you type the recipient’s fax machine number with the fax-to-email domain name in the “To” field, where you normally put an email address. After sending, you’ll receive two notifications – one to let you know the fax was sent successfully, and a second to let you know the fax was received.
