Faxing by email is just as quick and secure as faxing by mobile app, web browser or desktop app. To send a fax via email, you simply follow four easy steps:
- Click ‘compose message’.
- Type your recipient’s fax number into the ‘to’ bar, using the format “[email protected]”. Make sure you include your recipients country and area codes (i.e. ‘612’ for Canberra).
- Create a cover page by typing in the body of the email.
- Click ‘attach’ and select up to 10 files.
- Press ‘send’.
eFax will then transmit your fax in an average of 60 seconds or less, depending on your local internet speeds.
When you send a fax via email, eFax will also protect it with Transport Layer Security (TLS). TLS encodes the contents of your fax with a cipher before transmission. Once eFax has delivered your fax, the system decodes your fax automatically. If someone intercepts your fax during transmission, encoding your fax ensures it is unreadable to prying eyes. TLS also sends your fax with a security certificate that assures eFax that no one has intercepted your fax.
