Basic Information on Communications And Online Fax

Feb 4, 2008
In sending a message to a friend who lives a few distance away in the old days was to write it on a piece of paper and send it through a dove, literally defining air mail. As it was found that birds could not at all be trusted in getting their messages across, the people decided to do it themselves and appointed carriers to do the job. With the distance, it is definite that some time will pass before the letters are received. Messengers have to travel by horses or carriages and by boats if the recipients are overseas. And like the flying doves, this process also takes an ample amount of time.

With the developments of technology, the mailing course has advanced as well. Moving mail through planes has definitely expedited the process. Then there are phones, landlines and mobiles. However, sometimes talking is not enough. It is preferred especially in the business world, to receive correspondence on paper so that you have something to refer to. And so fax was invented.

Fax has been a way to send messages through fax machines that also serves as a phone. The procedure is definitely faster than regular mail. The downside, however, is that fax machines like phones can only receive from one sender at a time. If the line is busy, you have to wait your turn. If the phone line is defective, your fax machine is affected as well. Then there's the issue about fax paper. Your line might be available but if you are out of fax paper, then you will still receive zilch. So, fax is not at all that perfect.

As more and more people seek the easy way out, the one which can give them their goal served in a silver platter at the slightest amount of time and with the smallest exertion of effort possible, technology has further provided emails. Electronic communication lets you receive and send correspondence in seconds. And it works like a charm provided you have a good internet connection. A lot of people find the convenience of email the best way to communicate. So in a way to provide maximum advantage, the online fax was born.

With online fax, you can both send and receive fax documents straight to your computer as if they were electronic mails. The means of sending fax messages is faster than before with online faxing. Access is done through the internet so files and documents can be sent in a manner of seconds. And since the web is in operation 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, your fax receiver will be available all the time. There is no such thing as a busy line with online faxing so you can receive messages by the bulk whether they may be from one sender or two or three. Plus, there is also no worries if your machine is out of fax paper because there will be no need for any. No more missing out on important messages.
