MaxEmail Review on Fax Receiving
MaxEmail’s web-based fax service is one of the typical commercial fax service providers that allow users to send or receive fax from their electronic or computing devices – without keeping a dedicated traditional fax machine for the purpose.
The system does not require expensive servers to maintain fax transfer or a dedicated team to manage the same. There is also no need for paper or ink – a green way to pursue business operations. Faxes can be received either on the email ID of the user or at MaxEmail online account. The user needs to log in to a secured area and retrieve the fax – which arrives usually in a PDF format. The users are given a dedicated login name and password to check into their MaxEmail online account and download the fax document. Messages remain for 30 days in the fax server – so, one can get the faxes within this period. It is possible to manage plans and settings at any point of time.
The incoming fax messages can be directed to 25 email addresses – quite unique since most competitors don’t recognize such a vast number of email IDs. The operation is simple and integration is hassle-fee. No third-party utility is required to get started. Additionally, the plans include a complimentary feature – voice-mail. Primarily banking on VoIP telephony, the service provider is able to include this feature for free. In fact, users will be able to receive or send fax from their mobiles as well after they download a suitable mobile app for it. When faxing a document, the sender can pick a document, image file or PDF file and fax it.
The email message is automatically used as a cover letter. Faxes can be sent from the website as well. A fax not sent during the first try will be tried for 5 times – automatically. A real-time log sheet is provided on faxes that have been sent or returned. A final report is sent to the user’s email ID.
