How Does Fax2Mail Internet Desktop Faxing Work?

THE BASICS
If you know how to use email, you know how to use Fax2Mail!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To Send OUT a Fax (Outbound fax):

To send a fax, simply use the same process as sending an email with an attachment:

1. Enter the fax number followed by "@fax2mail.com" in the “To” field. For example "3035551212@fax2mail.com"

(NOTE: Fax2mail account owners have an authorized Email – your email must be “From
your authorized Fax2Mail email account). 

2. Add as an attachment the document you would like to send out as a fax

3. Hit Send.

You’re Done!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To RECEIVE a Fax (Incoming fax):

When signing up for service with E Street, E Street will assign you a local or a toll-free fax number.

Porting: You also have the option to port over your existing fax number. NOTE: customers porting in Fax numbers own their numbers and can port the number back out, but NEW Fax TNs issued by E Street are owned by E Street TN vendors and cannot be ported out.

You just give out your fax number like normal. When the sender faxes a document to you, it will appear in your inbox just like any other email.

1. Someone faxes your personal fax # just like normal
2. The Fax gets converted to a PDF or TIFF image
3. Image is sent as an attachment into your email inbox
4. Double click and view
