WebFax Number allows you to receive, manage faxes via the web and send faxes directly from your Windows-based PC. Senders simply dial your WebFax Number from their fax machine and transmit their faxes. You are notified of new faxes via email or any wireless device and you can automatically receive an attached PDF of the fax with your notifications. You may view, print and forward faxes to any email address or fax machine, and, from your Windows-based PC, you can send any document you choose to one or more fax machines, as well as to your personal mailbox.
