    Can't help you with that! (I would like to know if it is possible myself[​IMG] )

    Why not go to Kinkos or The UPS Store?

    U need a fax software. I have done this several times using WinFax or some other shareware. U will use the scanner, ur pc but u also need a modem with a phone line connected to it. I'm not sure if u can use the internet connect. Then again maybe u should ask that company if u can just email it to them as an attachement. Believe me, most people would be more "impressed" that u would be computer savvy.....

    If you have windows xp, you can setup your modem as a fax to both send and receive. I think windows 2000 might have it as well.

    No. To fax through the internet you have to have a subscription with a service, as the fax would have no way of getting out of the internet to the receiving fax machine otherwise.
