Yes.

You need a fax number for the fax to send to.

As well the fax you are sending from would need a fax number as well.

Well, you should have a fax number already to use with your machine (HINT: the phone number)


If the fax machine stores faxes itself and then puts them on your computer when you turn it on then no. However if the fax machine sends directly to your computer then yes it needs to be on.


* Need a separate space for the machine. * Needs a telephone line. * Needs power/electricity * Requires paper for receiving and sending faxes * Machine needs to be on always to receive faxes. If the machine is off, we may lose the faxes. * Large probability of losing faxes, which could potentially be important. * Storage and Archival of these Printed Paper Faxes are very cumbersome. They'll need a good amount of space in the office. * Aging of papers could lead to difficulties in managing records.

no, you can also send and receive faxes with email fax services.


Yes. You can send and receive faxes without internet. However, you do need to have an active phone line. Faxes are basically just a phone call on a piece of paper!


No, the fax machine needs only to be hooked to a working telephone line to send and receive faxes.


Yes, you can. This is the standard method of sending and receiving faxes through a fax machine. The phone line will need the appropriate telephone jack to fit into the fax machine - in most countries phones and faxes will hold the same phone jack, however there can be some challenges if using a fax machine from a foreign country.


The company Send2Fax offers methods of sending faxes. It provides a customer with a ability to send faxes online, without the need for an actual fax machine. It's services provide the customer with a specific email address, and gives access to a website for sending faxes directly online.


No, all your faxes are stored in your email account waiting for you to retrieve them. You don't need to leave your computer on to receive faxes.


You can use fax machine. There are establishments who offer this paid service. Also you may avail of the internet fax service where in you can send faxes using your online account. No need for a fax machine and a dedicated phone line, as long as you have an internet connected PC and a provider you can send and receive faxes cost effectively.


An online fax service is an eco-friendly, inexpensive and convenient way to handle faxes. This service enables you to transmit faxes through your e-mail. It eliminates the need for a fax machine, toner and paper. You won�t clutter the landfill, use electricity or waste your money buying a fax machine or supplies. This service also eliminates the need for an additional telephone line. You can send and receive your important faxes anytime and anywhere.


This program allows you to send faxes to people using your computer, the internet and the online application. It eliminates the need for a regular fax machine.


No. You can still receive faxes even if answering machine is turned on. Just make sure you have enough ink and paper for the fax to be printed.


Are you tired of running to a friend’s office or a copy company to send or receive faxes? Quite a number of free fax services have come and gone over recent years. There may not be one current service that lets you both send and receive faxes for free without a lot of restrictions, but that doesn't mean you can't have your fax and send it too! All you need to do is use two free services, one to send your faxes and another to receive faxes. There are some that allow you to send a limited number of short faxes for free. Some allow you to send two faxes per day, up to three pages each. It may not be high volume, but it can come in handy when you need to get few pages faxed out. The free faxes have an advertisement on the cover page. There is no registration required, and you can send faxes for free to anywhere in the U.S. and Canada. To receive faxes for free, you can get a free U.S. fax number from FaxDigits. Your faxes are delivered as a PDF file to your email inbox. They don't place a limit on the number of free faxes you can receive. You can't choose the location of your free fax number, however, which means that the number most likely will not be in your area. Either of these services alone is pretty nice, but the combined services are almost like having a free fax machine. There is another option through eFax; they are currently giving away a free dedicated fax number to anyone that signs up. All of these faxes work the same way. They are emailed to you. The registration is short and easy. Once you register, you should receive two faxes. One containing your fax number and the other has a file attached that is needed to view your faxes. The fax viewer is available for Mac, Windows, Linux and many other platforms. It is a very small program that allows you to view and print your faxes. When your run the viewer, there is a very small ad banner displayed, which is how the company makes its money. Again, these fax numbers are not generally local numbers. The service is available internationally, but since the fax number is in the U.S., it may not be the most practical service for those outside the U.S. who will receive faxes from their own country.


You dial a fax number on a fax machine exactly the same way you would dial the same telephone number on a regular landline phone at the same location.If you dial '9' for an outside line, then you dial '9' to send a fax to an outside number. If you dial just the 7-digit number for local calls, you do the same for local faxes. If you must dial the area code (or 1 + area code) for local calls in your area, then you must do that for faxes, too.


Just put the A4 paper and fax them to somebody you want toAnswerThere are 2 ways to send faxes its by using internet fax or fax machine. For fax machine, feed the paper to the machine then dial the number of your fax destination. With internet fax service, attach fax document on your email and send it to online fax number. this is a paid service so, in order for you to have an online fax number and online fax account, you need to subscribe for the service.


Faxes are useful, especially online faxes, as they are easy and save you money and time: - you save money on ink and paper - you use less energy - you don' t have to wait endlessly until your fax is send - you can archive all your online fax - you don't need to install any software nor buy a fax machine


Fax machines can only send and receive faxes when the phone line is available. You need to wait for a reply from your recipient to confirm either your faxes are successfully delivered or failed then repeat the sending process when necessary. You need to buy paper and ink. But with internet faxing service, you can send and receive faxes instantly with out the need for a phone line. You can transmit faxes anytime you would want. You can store faxes in your online account so no need for you to buy paper and ink, thus making the system very cost effective.


For online faxing you don't need one. All you need to have is an internet fax tool and internet connected PC. You can avail it from a service provider. For traditional fax machine, you really need a phone line in order to send and receive faxes.


The easiest way to send a fax is using an online fax provider e.g.Popfax: http://www.popfax.comYou do not need a fax machine, the process is quite easy, when you sign with them, they give you a fax number for free, and you can send/receive faxes directly from your computer/smartphone/desktop application/ email...


Yes. The voice over Internet Protocols are taking the way. Faxes nowadays could be sent through internet, as easy as you send your emails! You still get the local phone number, but on top of that you can send multiple faxes at the same time without a need to way for papers to go through and receive at same time huge amounts of faxes! It is the whole system of faxing put into the interface, that makes you professional - like automatic cover pages, delivery notifications, enhanced quality of the faxes, multiple email receptions, etc.


You can only email your faxes via an online fax account, this works with PC to PC faxing. But still you can interface your fax machine into your internet fax capable PC so that you can print out faxes that are really needed to be on paper. Fax to email is the next wave in the evolution of the fax machine. If the person you are faxing to has an online fax account they will receive the fax via email. If you wish to email your faxes you would first have to fax them to yourself and then forward them as an email. In the future we might find fax machines incorporating full keyboards to allow for sending to email addresses. Several companies offer online fax numbers. There are links to reviews in the resources section of this answer. You can keep your current fax number, get rid of your fax machine and then email your faxes. You need to find a provider. I signed up for an Axiatel package and I'm very satisfied. You can take a free test for 30 days. Answers: You may try some fax software, which has the fax to email function. May try joyfax server, if you wish.


There are two main reasons to clean a fax machine: 1) dust accumulates in the machine (paper, especially printer paper has a lot of dust that it gives off). The dust makes it difficult for the rollers and mechanisms of the machine to move the paper through it. 2) the image sensor has become dirty - if the faxes are being sent with a long black line down them, it's usually because the optical sensor that scans the faxes in is dirty.
