I have some receipts I need to fax to an insurance company. I bought a fax machine but the faxes keep aborting due to a "poor connection" on both our phone lines.

I have about 30 pages to send and the local mail box place charges $1.50 per page.

Any cheaper alternative suggestions?

There are a few internet fax companies around that may serve you at this point. It's odd you are getting so much noise on your phone line. Are you running DSL without a filter or something?

We sent a small test fax to a friend about 5 miles away last night and he got it okay. However today I am trying to send 8 pages of text laden documents to the other side of the U.S. and the faxes keep aborting after about page 4 with the poor connection message.

We do not have DSL, so that should not be an issue. We have had problem with the connection with one of the phone lines in the past when we used dial up service. At this point my long term solution is to switch the phones from the phone company to the cable service. But in the mean time I still need to send these faxes out.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try the Internet fax next. I was hoping to avoid that because then I have to scan 30 pages and plus figure out how to use it. However since I can't get the faxes via the machine sent out and I don't want to pay $45 to have the faxes sent for me, I guess that is my next logical option.

You just upload documents to their webserver and they do the scan and fax for you.

k7.net is a fax company for receiving faxes. It is free.

there are a host of ones for sending faxes.

Like you said it is a little time consuming to do the scanning.

Depending on your scanner/printer it might be easy or hard.

You might look and see if kinkos near you has a scan to email or scan to flash drive option that is cheap. Many copiers today have the ability to scan to PDF directly so it is nice!
