Email to Fax overview

Email to Fax and Web to Fax are both included in the free online registration, but before any faxes can be sent some airtime needs to be loaded. We always get the question of why this is necessary and why the outbound fax service is not also for free as the Fax to Email service.

The best way to explain this is to think of a fax as an outgoing call. When you make a call you have to pay for it. To send a fax by email users simply use the destination fax number as the email address, attach the document they want to fax, and hit send.

Try before you buy! Send a test fax

The Email to Fax service has a built-in test service that allows you to test the fax service before loading any air time. When a new user registers, a 086 number is automatically generated and linked to the user’s email address. The 086 number is also the user name on the fax system. Using the 086 fax number that was allocated with registration, users can now go through the motions of how to send a fax and get a feel for the system by sending a test fax to themselves.
