Gmail is a free web-mail service offered by Google. It is especially known for its search technology that makes locating messages easy. While Gmail is a great e-mail provider, it does not have a built-in feature that allows you to send a fax directly from your Gmail account. However, The Phone Company does have a free service that allows you to send an e-mail from your account through its server.
