Fax to Email

Many companies still use fax as their primary medium for sending text and graphics to others, but with the Internet opening up new avenues of message delivery it can appear old fashioned and restrictive.

Email offers many advantages over fax, but those who use it still find themselves being asked 'what is your fax number?'.

The problem has two possible solutions ...

1 - BUY A FAX MACHINE 120 will buy a reasonable fax machine, but you may need to consider an additional telephone line, which will have a monthly line rental attached. You will also have to keep it on all the time ready to accept faxes, which means you are open to the junk fax mailers who waste your expensive fax paper and ink.

2 - USE FAXMAIL For just 49 per year HavNet can supply you with your own fax number that allows you to receive faxes as if they were email! Junk faxes can be deleted at the click of a button, there are no additional monthly fees, and you won't need to have another phone line installed.

FaxMail provides you with your own Non-Geographic 0870 fax number that you can promote on your business cards, letterheads and promotional material. Anyone can send a fax to your number which will be immediately converted by our fax servers into a standard TIFF email attachment and sent to an email address of your choice.


FaxMail has many advantages over a traditional fax machine.
Here are just a few ...

  • Delete unimportant or junk faxes easily
  • Save premium office and desk space
  • Print only the important faxes
  • No need for an additional phone line
  • Low running costs
  • Import faxes directly into software such as OCR or DTP programs
  • No maintenance costs

Our FaxMail service is available for just 49 per year, payable one year in advance. That's just a few pence more than £4 per month. For more information on this service, call us on 0871 2710002 or Email Us ...


What format are the faxes delivered in?
The incomming fax pages are in TIF format. They will arrive as an attachment to an email. One TIF file will contain all of the faxed pages.

My computer can't view TIF files. Can you recommend a program?
There are many programs available, some free and some not so free !
The one that we use and support is called 'IrfanView'

How big are the TIF files?
Each fax page is on average 10 to 40kb depending on complexity of the page and therefore downloading them should only be a matter of seconds.

Can the faxes be forwarded to another user by email?
Yep, because it's a standard email with an attacment, you can forward to any other email address. Obviously the recipient will also need a program to view multi-page TIF files. Infact this is a very good way to send the fax on because it will not degrade the quality of the fax image, whereas re-faxing it in the traditional way would degrade the image quality.

Are 0870 numbers premium rate?
No, 0870 numbers are national rate numbers. Anyone sending faxes to this number will be charged at BT's standard national rate - it is NOT a premium rate number.

Can this number be called from outside the UK?
Generally speaking, no, although we have heard that some international carriers do allow calls to 0870 numbers from outside the UK. We make no guarantees and you should consider this service for UK use only.

I am based outside the UK, can I use this service to give me a UK fax number?
Yes, as long as you have an email address we can set-up this service to provide your customers with a low-cost way to send you faxes and avoid international call charges. Please note there is an additional admin fee of £15 to accept payment from outside the UK.

Is there a limit to how many faxes an be received?
We place absolutely NO LIMITS on the number of faxes that are sent to your number.

How long does the service take to set-up?
We can allocate a number and set-up your fax service within minutes!
New customers will be sent a pro-forma invoice before we allocate your number.

Can we use this service to send faxes?
No, this service is for inbound faxes only - it does not provide you with a way to fax out from your PC.

Please read our Terms and Conditions regarding this service.
