How can you send a fax from a fax machine to an email address?
My office has a traditional fax machine hooked up to the phone line. I want to know if it’s possible to send a fax from that machine and receive it via email. I’d prefer it if this could be done without buying a new fax machine. Ideally I’d like some service that would give me a phone number then forward all faxes sent to that number to an email address .

I do exactly what you’re asking about all the time, but maybe one better. I use a service from FaxLogic called “Personal 100 Pro”. Their “standard” service will do exaclty what you’re describing (a dedicated fax number that delivers faxes to one or more email addresses). But their pro service actually eliminates your analog phone line and replaces it with a little “adapter” device that connects it to your Internet service, turning your existing fax machine into a scanner. It still works like it always has (insert a document, dial the fax number, hit send), but it’s now also a smart digital device. One of the things you can then do is scan from your machine directly to your email. Both services are low cost: starting at $ 6/month for standard and $ 15/month for pro. And since pro eliminates your dedicated fax line, you actually save money with that option. Check it out…
