Send and receive from anywhere
An inbound fax number costs £3 per month. There is no charge to receive a fax and you can receive as many as you like. Outbound faxes are charged at 10p per page.
For incoming fax to email, simply buy a fax number from our web site (the same number is used for both outgoing and incoming faxes) - it will work immediately. There is nothing to set-up and faxes will be sent to the email address you have registered with us.
For outgoing email to fax, buy a fax number from our website (the same number is used for both outgoing and incoming faxes so if you already have one of our fax numbers you don't need another). You send the fax by emailing your documents to the fax number or uploading them to us using our online control panel.
When you choose a fax number from the Package Builder, incoming faxes are converted automatically to emails and then sent directly to your email account (Fax To Email).
Of course, once you have your faxes as an email you can print them, store them electronically or send them on to others easily. This saves you the cost and inconvenience of owning a fax machine.
Faxes can be sent and received with attachments - the following formats are supported:
Volume discount savings are automatically applied on accounts with more than 10 UK phone numbers. Numbers 11-20 will be £2.50 per month, and 21 and above will be only £2 per month.
At the moment, no - not as attachments anyway. PowerPoint slides and Excel pages can be sent by scanning them and sending them as an image file such as jpeg.
You can send faxes by email anywhere. It costs the same 10p per page as to the UK. Don't forget to include the full international code as if you are sending it from the UK.
The fax is sent as a PDF attachment. To read it just double click the attachment. If the file does not open for you automatically (it normally will) try opening it with Microsoft Office Document Imaging: Save the attachment to somewhere you can find it again by right clicking on it and choosing 'Save as...' (You may wish to create a faxes folder in 'my documents'). On the Windows Start menu, point to All Programs (Programs in Windows 2000), point to Microsoft Office, point to Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Microsoft Office Document Imaging.
