Re: [PLUG] Free Inbound Fax Service?

Yes, that's it.

Yeah, I send faxes more frequently than I receive them....but it's easy to find a corner shop/copy center/office where I can send a fax[*], but I wouldn't necessarily want anything personal sent to me at those addresses.

Has anyone used the old "sendfax" service recently (yes, there is a TLD named ".int", and yes, the "tpc" stands for "The Phone Company"...and amazingly enough, they've got a Philadelphia connection). Chris' UK email address reminded me of "sendfax". When I was doing more stuff overseas, I had much more frequent need to send faxes...and found the free "sendfax" (email --> volunteer physically "local" to the fax destination, running gateway software that sends the email via a local fax call) service to be very helpful. I haven't used it in years.
