Our solution lets customers send and receive faxes from any email-enabled device, anywhere in the world

Hostway Corporation, the global Web hosting leader, has launched Fax over Email, a solution that lets customers send, receive and store faxes using an email account rather than a traditional fax machine.

The benefits of Fax over Email are:

  • Increased productivity — users can send and receive faxes anywhere they have email access.
  • Lower costs — businesses don't have to spend money on fax machines, equipment repairs or other supplies associated with traditional, free-standing fax machines.
  • Space saving — faxes can be digitally archived and stored. No printouts or file cabinets to fill.

Fax over Email assigns a phone number to each plan, which can be accessed by multiple users. This makes it ideal for small functional groups like a legal or HR department, or a small business with a handful of employees. A Fax over Email user can produce a fax by just scanning any document, or they can directly transmit virtually any document created on their computer, including all the common formats used universally in business today: PDF, TIFF, MSWord documents, text documents, etc. The user attaches the document to an email message and sends the message to the recipient's fax number. Fax over Email translates the fax into a document that can be read by a fax machine and sends the data over the phone line. To receive a fax using Fax over Email, users simply check their email accounts. Any incoming faxes will be listed in the inbox and can be viewed as attachments, or printed out in hard copy.

“Our solution lets customers send and receive faxes from any email-enabled device, anywhere in the world,” said John Enright, vice president of marketing and business development for Hostway. “Fax over Email is more flexible, cost effective and convenient than a physical fax machine, and it’s perfect for today’s fast-paced, mobile-centric business professional.”
