I am looking into services that allow you to send/receive faxes via e-mail. In other words, you e-mail an attachment to 1234567890@example.com and the service faxes the attachment to 123-456-7890. Similarly, when someone sends a fax to your dedicated fax number, the service converts it into a .PDF (or other graphics file) and e-mails it to you and/or stores on their server for online access.

We would be primarily using the service for receiving faxes, not sending. Several years ago when I looked into this, sending faxes wasn't a problem, but receiving faxes often was.

So far, myfax seems to be what we are looking for. Anyone with good/bad experiences with them? If you've used them, how was the service as far as sending faxes overseas (they have several countries listed that are included in their monthly quota of free pages)?

Any cheaper (but still good) solutions for low volume (the above company includes 100 outgoing and 200 incoming faxes/month in the monthly charge, which is probably more than we'll ever use).

You might check out callclearvoice to see what they could do or trustfax. We use Freedom Fax but not too sure if they offer the email function. Freedom Fax will email us our faxes in a PDF form that is sent to our local and toll-free fax numbers

We use RingCentral for a virtual PBX and it has those features.

faxaway.com is an option, as well.
