How to Send a Fax Via Gmail?
To send a fax message using Gmail account is easily done by using the free fax service of The Phone Company (TPC). You can send a fax message to many areas in the world but not to all countries. The covered countries is United States, Canada, China, Botswana, South Africa, Greece, Bulgaria, Netherlands, Ukraine, Yugoslavia, Italy, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Turkey and many more.
Below are the steps to send a fax via Gmail:
- If the recipient of the fax message is covered by The Phone Company, you can send a fax. Verify by entering the fax number.
If the verification page says you can send a fax to that particular number e.g. "You can send a FAX to this number", simply login to Gmail to start sending a fax message.
Compose a new email message and then type remote-printer.recipient_name@fax_number.iddd.tpc.int in the "To" field, replacing the recipient_name and fax_number with the correct information e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org
- Type of text in the email message box, and then send the e-mail.
- The recipient will receive your message as fax message.
Note you can also send using another format: remote-printer.recipient_name/Company_Name_Here@fax_number.iddd.tpc.int or remote-printer@fax_number.iddd.tpc.int
The first format will add the company name in the fax cover sheet. The latter format will only send it to fax number without any fax cover sheet. It's best to add the recipient name if the recipient is in office or in hotel so the person that will receive the fax will know who is the recipient of the fax message instead of trashing the fax message or fax paper.
