FaxFX provides you with two methods for sending faxes:
**Please note:Email to Fax will always keep the highest image quality when sending the fax. Large documents like photo's and high resolution scanned images will take longer to deliver due to the larger file size. If you are faxing these types of files please make use of the Print driver to reduce the file size and fax delivery time. As a reference, analogue fax lines capable of highest speeds will take 9.5 minutes to deliver a file of 1 megayte in size.
Before trying to send a fax, please ensure you meet the following requirements:
- You are registered for a free Fax to Email account - You know what username and password to use - You have FaxOut credits available on your account
