By sfath ·
Is it possible to send and receive FAX messages using Windows XP FAX service over a DSL line? I prefer not to use a analog modem.

You cannot FAX over a DSL connection, but you can still send and receive faxes over your regular telephone lines.

Upgrading to DSL may add a DSL modem of some kind, but if you keep your old modem, you can still use software fax products like winfaxpro. You simply use your telephone line as before, by plugging a telephone line into your dial-up modem as before. This holds true whether or not you get ADSL over your home phone or SDSL on another line.

You may also try the internet solution, and subscribe to a service like jfax.com or efax.com which provides your own dedicated fax number, and you may send faxes using a utility, and receive fax messages (and voice messages!) in your mail inbox. You might also check out faxbeep.com for a list of internet fax providers.

Fax over DSL is called email.

There are online fax services that can be used instead of analog fax.

http://www.efax.com is one of them.
