    I use myfax.com.

    The monthly fee (I think about $12 a month or so) gives you a toll-free fax number which lets you receive faxes. To send, you simply email your scanned documents to xxxxxxxxxxx@myfax.com (where the xxxxxxxxxxxx is the phone number) from your email address.

    It's nice.

    Send, or receive, or both?

    For receiving, I use another internet-based toll free service, Kall8. They charge $2.00/month plus $0.07/ minute. The faxes (and voice mails) are e-mailed as attachment. Cool. And cheap!

    I see. I don't know if Kall8 does that. I looked into some of the fax-sending services, and most of them offered "fax marketing" programs, which a thin cover for (illegal) spam faxing.

    You know your Mac can send faxes directly, right?

    Gotcha. I forget about the concept of having no landline. Forgive me, I'm a old-timer. :)

    For sending I've used FaxZero many times with no problems. I always just use the free service.

    Faxpipe worked for me

    I used efax at one point, but kept having my faxes not come through. I switched to faxpipe, which has a 30 day free trial, and pretty reasonable prices.

    I like FaxPipe

    I have been using FaxPipe now for several months. They have been very reliable for both sending and receiving faxes. I have called in a few times for support as well, and they have been great to answer the phone and help immediately. I would recommend them. The prices are reasonable.

    Switched from eFax to faxpipe

    I switched to faxpipe from eFax after getting lots of misdirected faxes that were intended for the company who previously had my number (that company was terrible about disseminating its new fax number).

    Since I fax infrequently and was getting charged for all those misdirected faxes, I looked around for a less expensive online service and chose faxpipe on the basis of price, fax service, and customer service. The big win with faxpipe is that since it is email-based, it will work with any operating system - Mac OS, Windows, Linux, Solaris, etc. - no special fax client software needed.

    The only downside to that approach is you have to compose the cover page and email message yourself, and I occasionally mistype the fax number. But at something like 1/4 the price I can live with that.
