Hi everyone

How can I send a fax with Windows XP from my desktop? At the moment I just use a fax machine, but I have told that you send it from Windows without needing a fax machine. Does anyone know how this is done?

If you have a modem on your PC:

If you do not have a modem on your PC:
"If you're without a modem or you don't want to tie up your phone line, an Internet-based fax service might work best for you. Visit the sites of Internet faxing services, among them eFax, and Faxaway and read their FAQs. Which service you choose depends on your pattern of fax usage. Some have excellent international rates, for example, but if you don't send faxes to other countries that probably doesn't matter to you. Also some services require that you use their software to read incoming faxes."

Dear Angel,

take look this:

http://www.eFax.com

Get a free fax number that allows people to send faxes which you can view through your E-Mail. Great for translators who don't want to pay for an extra line, plus there are no frustrating paper jams to deal with! FREE DOWNLOAD!

Compress your files to save time and space. Also helps get rid of those pesky file-transfer problems that occur when sending files through some types of E-Mail systems.

Kindest regards

Not really free, since it is only for one month's trial and then 11 EUR per month, which is only justified if one has a lot of faxes to send regularly.
