    What tools or softwares you guys are using to send faxes in the hundreds, maybe thousands, without to paying exorbitant phone company fees?

    I remembered seeing something from Skype but can not find it anymore and even though, Skype rates within my country are $.25 per minute, much more than I pay to call the other side of the world, so not affordable.

    Just want to send then from my computer, without having to print them.

    Any help?

    Thanks.

    You do know that FAX spamming in the US is a federal crime, and is punishable up to $500 per fax sent?

    Well said, Keith.

    However, even though my post sounded like spam, No, I do not want to spam fax 1000s of people, it is for legitimate prospects only, targeted and personalized, not to say professional.

    I just do not want to spend lots of $$$$$$$...

    Anyone has suggestions?

    Fax uses phone lines.

    Your big cost is going to be long-distance and international calling charges.

    VOIP is going to be your friend.

    Go to an office supply store, buy a generic fax machine, and then get yourself a vonage or other VOIP account. (Hell a magic jack might even work if they have international calling).

    Plug the fax machine into the VOIP converter box (instead of plugging in a regular phone) and send your fax.


    I've used VOIP numerous times to successfully and reliably send faxes, even via satellite internet connections.
