Is there an alternative to eFax?

    After several years of owning a free incoming only fax number with eFax they went and cancelled my account without warning. It’s a bit more involved than that, but that’s the long and short of it. I need a fax to e-mail service but I’m so pee’d off with eFax that I refuse to sign up for another of their free accounts.

    I’ve has a quick Google to see what’s on offer but none of the others seem as reliable (or as big) as eFax. Does anybody use a provider that they’d be happy to recommend?

    Grateful for any suggestions.

    Regards

    Just has a look at Yac.com and they've been taken over by eFax. eFax also took over PumaOne who my fax account was originally with. It seems that there's no escaping them.

    Many thanks for all your replies above. I signed up with voipfone.co.uk in the end. Free incoming and pay as you go outgoing is perfect for me.

    Regards

    Interesting thread - I had been thinking of getting a line in just for faxes but was hesitant because we only receive a few a year - hadn't really thought about using one of these services. Had a look at Voipfone's site and it looks great.
