efax.com who provide a free fax to email service. Register and get your own US or UK fax number. All faxes to you are then forwarded as email graphic file attachments. I have registered and my UK fax number is 0870 124 6863.

Sending an Email to a Fax machine

There are a number of companies and organisations offering an email to fax service, some charge for the service - some do it for nothing. Try it -: set up an email address in the format remote-printer.Any_Name@441234567890.iddd.tpc.int. where Any_Name is the name of the person who is to receive the fax the 44 indicates a UK fax number and is followed by the actual number of the fax machine. Please note that spaces are not allowed - you can use an underscore('_') instead.
An advert on the bottom of the cover page pays for the fax delivery. You are only allowed to send a limited number of faxes in any one hour - so if you want to send spam - forget it!
