Free fax service

For most of us, faxes are quite dated. Having a fax machine to receive documents can be quite a chore to coordinate the logistics in figuring out where someone could send you a fax. If you use K7, you can receive faxes and voice mails for free.

Go to K7.net, give them your email address, select a 4 digit pin, and answer 4 questions on the service you want, and you will have your own (206 area code) fax number. Service options include the following:
  • Save faxes only (which can be retrieved off the K7 website)
  • Save faxes and send you a copy via email
  • Do not save, email only
Faxes are saved in TIF format, which will give you multiple images in a single file -- one image per page.

The service claims to continue to support your account for free as long as it is used at least once every 30 days. If you have the Washington State only plan, which receives calls only placed within Washington, you can have up to 90 days of inactivity before your account is released.

Next time you need to receive a fax, you will have an easy to set up, free solution.
