Internet Faxing FAQs

>

What is email to fax and how does it work?

Email to fax has become one of the most common ways to send a fax from a computer. By using email to fax, businesses can attach a document (usually as a Microsoft Word document or PDF file) to a regular email and forward them to a specific fax number. The other party then receives it through their fax machine or email inbox.

>

Can I access and manage faxes on any device?

All you need to view, send, receive, or manage faxes is a device with an active internet connection. You can use your Ringover app installed on your desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet. You can also access your Ringover account through an internet browser.

How does internet faxing work?

A traditional fax machine converts your document into an image, which is then converted into packets of data. While fax machines use telephone lines to transmit data electronically, a web-based fax solution relies on the internet rather than analogue lines.

Ringover lets you keep your old fax number. Simply reach out to our support team to initiate a number transfer. If you don’t have a fax number yet, our solutions specialists will automatically generate one for you upon signup. You can choose between a toll-free number or a local number.
