Are you familiar with how to send a fax online? It appears that not only is this an option, but you can do it for free in some instances. For example, I’m looking at one site that lets you do it for free for at least the first 30 days.
Sending faxes by computer has changed throughout the years. A website I pulled up recommended that your computer be connected to your phone line. Yeah, well I’m not so sure that people have phone lines anymore for the most part. Even the people that have residential home phones usually have them connected via their Internet service. Perhaps this tip was from the dial up days.
Here, fax.to/+35726030157 and that will pre-fill the number on the site saving you time. Actually, it wasn’t, and that’s surprising. It talks about using Windows 7 to make it happen. Windows 7 isn’t the latest operating system from Microsoft, but it’s not Windows 98 either. It still surprises me to see them say connect your phone to the computer, when I’m sure there is a much easier way. I wonder if the fax services that tell you that you can use your email address make you use your phone as well.
What you should realize is that when you do send a fax online, documents have to be attached just like they are attached in an email. See if the business can take an email from you vs a fax. That way you can still send your documents electronically but without having to worry about ancient technology meshing with the new. Emailing isn’t quite outdated just yet, so you’re good to go attaching documents and sending them to an email address. However, if a fax is the only way to get the job done this time around, where there is a will, there’s a way.
