What is email to fax?

Email to Fax allows you to send faxes directly from your email!

You just send your email to an address using the following format:
<fax number goes here>@vax.co.za   (e.g. 27415818182@vax.co.za)
from the email address that is setup to send faxes on our system.

You no longer need to waste space, time and money standing at the Fax machine trying to get that Fax delivered. Simply Email it!

Our Email to Fax service enables you to compose an email which will be sent to someone's fax machine.

There are two ways of sending the email to fax:
The body of your email will be sent as a fax
Any attachments will be sent and printed as a fax.

The following formats can be sent as attachments:
