Exfax's email@fax software
manages all communications on the fax telephone line. Numbers dialled on
the fax machine are detected as DTMF digits by the software. The
key is used to select internet fax and fax-to-email functions. Using this
feature, documents from the fax machine are seamlessly delivered to email
addresses. Any number of faxes can be delivered to any number of email
addresses for free (using LAN connection) or using one local call (using
dialup). For a delivery of a normal fax via the PSTN the fax number is
dialled as usual. For an email fax, the user dials an 'email number' (coded
in the address book). Normal fax calls are logged by the PC. Email faxes
are automatically sent as TIFF file attachments with a standard text message.
Most recipients will have the capability to view and print TIFF images
received by email. Exfax also provides a free image viewer for this purpose.
The TIFF-F image format supported by email@fax (both MH and MR compression)
is compatible with the ITU and IETF standard. Delivery from fax machine
to fax machine via Internet is also provided in email@fax. On the
fax machine, the user dials
country-city-number. In the software the user first selects an Internet
fax delivery service. The user must register with the delivery service
provider. The software automatically routes the TIFF file to the bureau
server for delivery. Other software features provided include multi-platform
printer driver support, enabling printing from any application to the local
fax machine, or remote fax by PSTN or Internet fax. A complete log record
is provided for all incoming and outbound calls from the fax machine.
