IPFax is an email-based fax service.
Both sending and receiving faxes is handled via e-mail.
Receiving a fax
Incoming faxes for the company's fax number are received by IPFax' gateway and sent by e-mail to the company - usually to the address fax@"domain" (eg email@example.com).
The contents of the fax are attached as a PDF document that can be opened with the Acrobat Reader application.
Sending a fax
Faxing can be done from any of the company's computers. The e-mail with the fax content attached is sent to IPFax's fax gateway, specifying the recipient's fax number:
"Fax number "@mail2fax.dk (eg firstname.lastname@example.org)
You attach the content you want to send.
The following formats are supported:

Only one document can be attached per e-mail fax. For security reasons, the e-mail sender address must be from the corporate domain. It is not possible to send faxes from private email addresses.
