What is Email to Fax?

Email to fax allows you to send faxes directly from your email account, both at your computer and on your mobile device.

The key advantages of using Email to Fax are:
  • Portability. Fax from anywhere, including in the office, at home or on the road.
  • Whitelist senders. Add multiple email addresses to your whitelist, allowing others to fax on your behalf without accessing your FaxSalad account.
  • Email notifications. Don't sit there thinking your faxed documents have been received only to find out the opposite. FaxSalad will notify you of any problems with your fax.
