Paperless fax machine? What's that? Isn't the whole point of faxing that
you get a piece of paper into your eager hands?

Anyhow, I use e-mail.

Why not just use your computer instead?

What is a "paperless fax"; unless it might describe image file
transmission?
Thinking of efax.com for doing faxes through email.

May I add that my HP Scanjet, using the HP Solution Center software,
will scan a document and automatically send it as a file attached to an
e-mail. I suspect this must be as reliable as a fax.

Had been around for a long time, it's called E-Mail, and the best ones
are FREE !!!!!!

The method employed by efax was available to me more than 20 years ago
but in those days my employer (the US Government) paid for the faxes. I
know that some physician's offices and banks still seen enamored of fax
machines but what's wrong with an attached file, especially since unlike
efax, there is no cost involved? If security is a problem the e-mail
could be digitally signed.

This assumes your customer base, clients, patients, whatever, also use
computer technology. The last thing I'd think a business person would
want to do is piss you income base off.

Computerization of records is proceeding apace in physicians' offices.
Very little cost would be involved if a bank branch devoted one PC to
receiving emails. Almost everyone can be connected to the Internet
(necessary for efax too).

"Almost" being the keyword here. And, the assumption the recipients
know how to use the new, and possibly new to them, technology.

Are there fees for efaxes?

Yes, there were when I last looked into them and you have to send an
email to efax don't you?

You won't believe how hard I'm laughing. Those miracle boys of
marketing have a lot of people paying to do something they used to do
for free, assuming you used your computer.

Remember WinFax? ;-)

Just had my nephew ask me about these. He wondered WHY specs showed that it
needed a direct internet connection. I replied and will post here as an FYI:

With an e-printer you can be in a coffee shop and print the file to your
home printer. So it acts like a server - to get that file to print it needs
to have a direct internet connection. It's not 'wireless in the house
printer acting as a slave printer off a pc'. Theoretically, you could have
no pc in the house and the printer would print.
The printer itself gets an email address assigned to it when you register
with HP.
To print, you email the document to that email address - from anywhere. If
powered off, when the printer turns on - it fetches its email - just like
your pc works with your email.
Kinda like a fax machine using email rather than telephone system - no cost
to user to use it AND you only get printouts/email (theoretically) from
people that know you - no faxes received from robodialers.

Not worth paying extra for at home but HP might be bundling in its new
printers and charging a few bucks extra. ( Like making CD players standard
in all cars and adding $30 to price of all cars rather than a $175 option
for some.)

I'm not sure if there is/will be a charge to use it. In a few years, I can't
imagine HP assigning 100 million emails address, the disk space to store the
files, the responsibility of backing up the disks etc - for free.

Some of my clients still use fax (mom and pop shops, restaurants, etc.) so I
had to subscribe to eFax at a cost of $50 per year. Well worth it to keep
those clients.

I remember the angst I suffered once when trying to buy a wall mounted
fax. Can't remember how many stores I was kicked out of.

My neighbour has a gas station, and gets the daily fuel price list
by fax.
He could use his computer/modem to recieve them, but he prefers paper.
Also some legal correspondence needs a paper trail.
Email is fine, but too easely forged.
