    I have an all in one printer/scanner/copier. I use a web based fax service and an air card to send and receive faxes.

    I have an "All-In-One" but I don't use a FAX service or "FAX" documents. ANYONE that would need you to "FAX" a document to them would have an EMAIL ADDRESS.
    You SCAN the document, and MOST (modern) printers/scanners/copiers include PDF creating capability in their "program". It is much easier to email a PDF than to FAX a document, and the receiver gets a much better document. (Plus, you have a copy of the document as well for your records.)

    Yes, you are talking about "permitting". I was talking in general about shippers/receivers who want "stuff".

    Almost everyone these days can print out a pdf file. A lot of times, I'll ask the recipient if they will accept a pdf file if I email it to them. The only situation Ive come across where I couldn't do this was a Canadian border crossing.

    There is a program out there called "cutePDF." Installing that will put a fake printer in your printers folder. So, I use a regular Kodak digital camera, snap a photo of it, (I have to turn the flash off so it doesn't glare) then load the photo up on my laptop, and print it, using the fake cutePDF printer. This generates a pdf file of the document. Then I email it. This takes care of 90% of the faxes I have to send out. For incoming, I like Flying J's service. For a buck, you can rent a fax number for 3 days. They have longer and even permanent subscriptions if you like. You can then just whip into any Flying J at your convenience and pick up your fax.

    I disagree just a wee bit. Fax is still King in the business world. Many businesses will not accept an email, and will only do business through fax. Back when my family owned retail stores, just about the quickest way we had of recognizing another legitimate business was by use of fax. Odds were if we got the old "sorry no fax, can I email" ploy. We new were we dealing with a less than legit source.
