I don't have a fax machine. Is it possible to send a free fax by email?

How to Send a Fax by Email - For Free

MyFax is a popular commercial fax by email service. After signing up, you can send a fax by composing an email which contains the text you want to send, or an attached document. You can try MyFax free for 30 days, after which you can send 100 fax pages for US$10 per month.

eFax is a service that lets you send and receive faxes as email attachments. You simply use the recipient's fax number and eFax's address. The 30-day free trial lets you send up to 30 fax pages. You can also use eFax to receive faxes by email, up to 130 pages during the trial. Be careful, though... if you don't cancel during the initial month, you will be charged US$16.95 per month.

UFAX is another commercial service that allows you to send a fax by email. Like MyFax, it's a paid service with a free trial. UFAX let you send free faxes for the first month, from a your PC or mobile PDA device. Just remember that if you go for the free one-month trial, you will have to remember to cancel before the trial period ends, or your credit card will be charged.

InterFAX is another option for email faxing. InterFAX doesn't have a free trial option, but you can subscribe for as little as US$10, allowing you to send about 90 faxes for 11 cents per page. You can enter your fax message in the body of the outgoing email, or attach DOC or PDF files to be faxed.

Truly Free Online Fax Services

If none of these services are right for you, or you don't want to pay for a commercial fax service, there are some web-based fax services that are 100% free. FaxZero is one that I've used and recommend to others.

See also Kevin Savetz's Fax FAQ for a list of online services you can use to send and receive faxes.
