Forward incoming faxes to your email

Do you need to forward the faxes you receive via the Microsoft's Fax Console (Fax Console is the fax ability of Windows XP Professional, Windows Server, Windows Vista Business/Ultimate and all versions of Windows 7/10) to one or more email address anywhere in the world? 

Now with the Successful Software's ForwardFax2Email (forward fax to email) solution you can automate the whole thing in less than 5 minutes.

 

How it works

  • You simply install the Successful Software's ForwardFax2Email solution to the machine that receives the faxes.  This is usually a Windows computer that has the Fax Console of Windows (in Windows Vista and Windows 7 this place is called "Windows Fax and Scan") installed on it.  If you do not know how to do this please read this Windows XP Professional tutorial, or this Windows Vista/7 tutorial.

  • When a fax is received via your PC's fax modem that's connected to your dedicated fax phone line, it (the resulting .TIF file) is automatically forwarded by email to the one or more pre-designated email addresses you selected (e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., etc).  Click here to read the instuctions on how you can prepare your Windows Fax to automatically save a copy of each fax that you receive on your hard disk: ForwardFax2Email will do the rest.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Question: I have several incoming fax lines, and I would like to accept incoming faxes for all of the numbers on one PC, but be able to forward them to different email addresses.  For example: If I get an incoming fax to 1 234 567 8910, I want it to send the email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If I get an incoming fax to 1 555 555 5555, I want it to send the email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Is this possible with ForwardFax2Email?
Answer: This is possible with ForwardFax2Email as long as you have:

1.    Multiple fax-modems connected to the PC.  Each fax-modem must be connected to a fax line.
2.    A program, or multiple fax receiving programs (e.g. Microsoft Fax which is shipped with Windows XP Professional, Windows Server, Windows Vista Business/Ultimate and all versions of Windows 7, Snappy Fax, etc) that will pick up the phone of each fax-modem when a fax is coming and will save the received fax to a specific file folder of your PC.  E.g. the fax program that will answer the phone for the fax line No 1 234 567 8910, to save the received fax to the C:\Received faxes\12345678910 file folder, while the fax program that will answer the phone for the fax line No 1 555 555 5555, to save the received fax to the C:\Received faxes\15555555555 file folder.  Usually the file format of the received faxes is a TIF file (TIF files are image files like the BMP files of Windows) and can be opened/viewed/printed via Windows. 
Note that ForwardFax2Email is not a fax receiving program: it only forwards a received fax to an email address (or many email addresses).

 

Question: Why aren't there any screenshots of the program?
Answer: This product is executed on the background, while you work on your machine, without showing any windows/notifications, etc.  However, (if you want) you can select  a computerized voice to inform you about the successful forwards of a fax to an email address (or email addresses).

 

Question: Is there a trial or demo version of this program?
Answer: No at this time.

 

Question: How much system resource this software product requires to run?  Will affect my system's performance?
Answer: The ForwardFax2Email is not staying resident on the memory and therefore doesn’t affect your system's performance.  We schedule it (via the Windows Task Scheduler) to check every 10, 30, 60, 180, etc seconds for any incoming faxes (the frequency of the checks is up to you).  When the time comes, the ForwardFax2Email is executed, checking for incoming faxes and, if there is one, it forwards it to the designated email account(s).  After than it terminates itself automatically freeing the small amount of resources it needs when is executed.
