MaxEmail is a pretty great, inexpensive service that will assign you a fax line and convert your faxes to pdfs and email them to you. They also allow you to ‘fax out’ through their website. I think they also do ‘voicemail to email’ conversion but I don’t use that. Their “Lite” service (the only I use) is only $24/year and you get a fax line (non-local, which means a random area code) that can receive 100 fax pages a month. Obviously I never use 100 fax pages a month, but for $24/year I think it’s a great deal. So I have a fax number to put on my business cards and email signatures, even though it’s extremely rare for someone to use it. If you want to send out faxes from their system they charge you 10 cents a page, but I think I loaded $10 on there years ago and just recently had to refill it. Of course they have more expensive options where you can pick a local fax number, or have multiple numbers (as a ‘corporate’ types of plan), but again, I don’t use those. I use the bland little $2 a month option, and I like to know that if anyone asks “Yes, you can send me a fax.”
So, if anyone is interested in getting MaxEmail, feel free to check out their site through the banner below. They send me a few bucks if you signup with the, which will certainly help pay for my hosting costs.
