Using an Online Electronic Faxing Service

Electronic Faxing today seems to be the way the world is moving to maintain this old style of technology.

We recommend a local company, to give you the same functionality as your traditional fax without the requirement of a phone line and equipment.

You should also see the faxes sent, in the sent folder and the faxes received, in the inbox folder once logged in.

All faxes sent will be sent your your designated email address also, so you don't really need to log into the portal unless its for administration purposes.
