How to get Free fax to Email Service

How to get Free fax to Email Service. Most fax to email services, like most fax service offerings, typically involve some sort of initial start-up fee or monthly or yearly service fee, per fax fees or a contract. It may appear impossible at first glance to get free fax to email service or even to fax an email, but it need not be.

Use a scanner and a computer to create your own document delivery system. The premise is the same as a telephony fax or scanned document sent via an online fax service, except you scan a copy of the document on a scanner or scan it on a fax machine with copy and scan ability. Then, you load and attach the document to send it via email to an email address. Many free email services exist and, except for the upfront cost of the scanner, you can send your documents free any time you like without the hassle of dealing with fax service fees.

Send two free faxes (three pages maximum) a day to the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico for free with faxZERO (see Resources). The faxZERO online service uses advertising to pay for the free faxes by placing an ad on the cover page of your fax. Enter your "Sender" and "Receiver" information, select a .doc or .pdf file or create a text message, type the confirmation code and then click the "Send Free Fax Now" button to send your fax.

Purchase an online fax service such as eFax (See Resources), if all else fails. You get one month's worth of faxing for free, receive a set number of faxes for free and pay only a per fax fee for sending.


Keep in mind that a free online fax service need not require a "receiver" email address to send a free fax to email. Many companies now use fax servers instead of fax machines to receive inbound faxes. Fax servers have fax numbers, but instead of producing paper fax documentation upon receipt of a fax they copy the documentation (typically as an image or .pdf) and automatically send it to the recipient whose email is attached to that phone number.
