Re: What is a good FAX program for my computer?

I'm using efax. It's free for a month, but since I'm travelling a lot right now, I'm happy to pay the fee and be able to receive faxes through my computer.

Technically if you had VOIP service you might be doing that but still using a conventional fax machine or fax modem (tied to a phone jack).
Been using WinFax for years...no complaints.

Re: What is a good FAX program for my computer?

Q:Can I use MightyFax with my CABLE Modem?

A: You may use CABLE or DSL for accessing the internet, but if you want to fax then you must also have a standard faxmodem and telephone line. It is quite common to use cable for internet access and also use a regular faxmodem and phone line for sending faxes. (it is also useful as an internet connection backup when cable is out).

OK, so I'll still have to be hooked up to a landline 0

Thanks everyone, guess I'll stick to the old fax machine for now.

I use MightyFax.

Very good program with lots of nice features. Fax multiple documents at the same time, etc. I've used it for at least a year now with zero problems.

I've used WinFax and it was pretty good and very configurable.
There's another one that Cheyenne makes, but I forget its name.

The fax program that's built into windows should work fine for ya. Several people in our enterprise use it with no complaints.

Interesting. This is from XP Home:


Quote:
To install the Fax component
Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
In the Windows Components Wizard, select the Fax Services check box, and then follow the instructions on your screen.
Notes

To open Fax after installation, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click Fax Console.
For more information on using Fax, click Help in Fax Console.

Can't say Speed. I have used the software that came with my Lexmark printer.

Conq or ND or someone else may be more help, but check yourr printer software.

What is a good FAX program for my computer?

I've never sent a fax via my computer before, and am wondering what program I should download, or if there's already one installed on WinXP Home, how to use it?
