Hi, I'm Noah and I'm going to show you how to send a fax over the Internet. On-line faxing services are really practical because instead of having a big, bulky fax machine in your home or even in your office, you can simply use your computer and send faxes from the Internet without having any additional hardware. Plus, you'll be able to send and receive faxes anywhere you travel as long as you have Internet access. To start sending faxes on Internet, you'll need to sign on for an Internet fax service by e-mail such as or eFax which can be found at The way these work is that once you're signed up, you'll be able to receive and send faxes by e-mail. Receiving's often free, but sending incurs a fee on your behalf. More specifically, when you send a fax, you send an e-mail to the recipients phone number to your faxing service, and you attach the document that you'd actually like to send by fax. When receiving, on the other hand, you'll just get an e-mail with an attachment from your Internet fax service and the attachment will basically contain a PDF copy to be viewed in Adobe Reader of the fax that somebody sent to you.
