automatic fax to email

Does anyone know if Microsoft or any third party makes a good program that
will allow you to use your existing fax number and have your computer forward
the fax to one or more email accounts?

Even if I need to add a special modem card I am still interested.

Thanks,
John

Have you tried using a search engine for your inquiry? Must it be from Outlook? If yes, then include Outlook in your search inquiry.

Yes I have tried several search engines. It does not have to be from
Outlook. We just want to unplug our fax machine, hook the line into the
computer and have it forward a traditional fax to one or more email accounts.


One of the reasons this is important is because the fax number is published
and we do not want to change it or forward the line to an online service if
it is not required.

Cannot be done with any of the fax software that can integrate with Outlook.
Rules cannot be used to forward faxes in Outlook. Details here:

Also, You can't use forward with faxes. You have to Open the fax then Print
it to your fax printer and generate a new fax.
