    OK, who still uses a fax machine?
    We do. :eek:

    How easy is it to switch incoming faxes to my mac, and what do I have to do? Can I cancel having 2 phone lines coming into my house and save maybe $30 per month line rental on the second fax line? Or are people finding that they still need their fax?

    Got it :eek:

    I've been around for ever as well....
    sometimes there's only so many manuals you can read at once,
    and only so many crisis you can deal with at any one time. ;)

    I use greenfax.com myself. It's a bit cheaper than efax, and it's been working consistently for me. They gave me my own local fax number in Chicago (you can pick your city) which sends the files directly to my email. I can get faxes as Tiffs, PDF's, or encrypted files which I have to download from their server. I can also send faxes via email (I simply save the file as a pdf while printing it and attach it to my email - though I think they accept word docs and text files too).

    I've never used eFax, so I don't know how they measure up.

    The best part is my boss is paying for it! :)
