You can send faxes through your Fax Thru Email account or through your email client (for example, Outlook, Eudora, Yahoo!, or Hotmail).

Fax Thru Email converts attachments into fax pages. You can import a cover sheet, create one using the Fax Thru Email program, or use one of the cover sheet templates that Fax Thru Email provides. Your fax can be up to 20MB in size.
Note: You can send faxes to North America (U.S. and Canada). International faxes are not supported; Fax Thru Email does not process outgoing fax numbers that include a country code or international destination.

Successful and Failed Transmissions
Fax Thru Email sends you a confirmation email message to the email address you specified on the Settings page. You can check the status of the fax in the View History page. For successful transmissions, the minutes are deducted from your account.
If the transmission encountered a busy signal, Fax Thru Email attempts the transmission three times. If the transmission encounters an invalid fax number, it does not send the fax. Minutes from an unsuccessful transmission are not deducted from your account.
