    I have eFax and am paying something like $16 per month. I send maybe 3 faxes a year, and receive about as many, but sometimes I have to have that capability. $200 a year is crazy for the tiny numbers I use. I’m looking for cheap first, quality second. Suggestions?

    We would be interested in it too. We use ours a little more. A few times a month at least. Not as much as we used to though. My wife hates scanning things, so she faxes it to her Efax and then gets the email and then uses that as an attachment or forwards the email. Sometimes it’s delayed or the pages don’t go through as good. So now I have been scanning things for her at home or her assistant does it at the office. We pay about $15-20 a month too.

    I use Maxemail. I think I pay about $85.00 a year. My wife uses it the same way, fax it to your number and you have a PDF file to email. The email comes through in about a minute or so.

    I have to find out from my wife if she receives any faxes on it from others. Most Realtors scan and email now and don’t fax. They have an office fax but she works from home sometimes and that makes it easier.

    I dropped eFax earlier today. i think I’m going to just game the various providers and do a free trial when I need to send or receive. i can’t see spending anything for such infrequent use.

    Do you have a fax line? We have a fax line too. It’s free with our phone line and because we have Internet with Frontier. Do you use the Efax to send or receive?

    I dropped my fax line 15 years ago. I just used eFax through the Internet. I used eFax for both, more sending than receiving. Sometimes my daughter has an old doctor that doesn’t use email and faxes stuff to her. Sometimes the government agencies require a fax. No one in our business uses them to my knowledge.

    Our Efax has an actual phone number. So how do you receive an Efax through the Internet?

    Well, someone uses the number, it goes to eFax, then it’s sent as a pdf to your email address. You have a unique fax number but it is really just a central number in eFax servers. I think all the services are the same.

    Okay, that’s the same as ours then. But how do you send a fax? Just use your regular phone line?

    Nope, it’s emailed to eFax. You do push “send” like it’s a number, but it’s email to them and delivered to a fax machine or Internet account.

    I have used eFax for years. For a while, I paid for a 916 number for my business because it “looked good”. As e-faxing technology became more commonplace, I dropped the paid line and went for a free eFax which has a different area code but that doesn’t matter much these days for my business.

    I started with that free Efax. If they still offer it then there’s the solution.
