This is a software solution that lets you receive faxes even though you may not have a fax machine. Faxes sent by others are received and saved and can be forwarded to your email client such as Outlook.
You are able to receive faxes working over the Internet. The faxes are saved as images in a format of your choice including PDF, JPG, TIF, SFF. You can choose to have these forwarded to your email client such as Outlook. Your network becomes a Unified Messaging Network. You can additionally print out all faxes received. The fax@MAIL can reliably replace your fax equipment for your business use. It really does not make sense in this day and age to invest in a fax machine for the first time. But if you do have clients, customers who depend on the old world fax machine to communicate then this software is a nice solution to stay in touch.
The communication involves using a gateway to the Internet to convert between faxes and emails. It is often referred to as "fax to mail" or "mail to fax". This technology is more and more replacing the traditional fax machine. You do not need the additional phone line that services the fax machine. It would go out through the Internet connection that is set up for the email and other needs too. All the communication activities and related events are logged by fax@MAIL are noted in a log file in the W3C format and can be evaluated graphically with Visendo Analyzer or any analyzer meeting that standard. Not a very convenient solution as ISDN card is required on your machine.
