I'm ready to ditch my color fax machine that uses 4 color cartridges that cost me about 100 dollars each. These cartridges seem to run out of ink every other day, even though they appear to have ink in them... Boy, what was I thinking? Why the heck did I buy this thing? Nobody ever faxes me in color!
It all started with a little peer pressure from a friend, something like: "you don't have a color fax machine? what's wrong with you? " Then I got to thinking... as I needed a new fax machine, it would be great to have those faxes in color... wouldn't it? Well, it never happened... after I bought this machine I sat by and waited, and waited, and waited... nobody ever sent me a color fax... How disappointing
So I'm looking at this machine as it demands yet another set of cartridges before it spits out my fax... I tell ya... I'm done with this thing...
Oh yeah, that reminds me why I posted this topic in the first place. Which internet fax services do you use and how reliable are they? I need to get a fax service ASAP.

Hey, why did you want to receive colour faxes - lucky you don't get any fax spam!

Well, we work with graphics programs and deal with color images - mainly logos - and I thought it would be useful. Turns out emailing is preferred by just about everyone we deal with.
BTW, I did sign up with eFax and find the service working well so far. I figure costs of the monthly service @ 17mth will hopefully be a better value than total costs of ink cartridges, and fax machine. I expect it would esp if you are sending/receiving a lot of faxes. In my case I'm a borderline user, so it might pay off or at least balance out. Anyway, no more spam faxes printing out unless I say so...
Hey Russell, Dave here.
I've used MetroHiSpeed Internet Fax for the past 3 or 4 years. Very good services. I've yet to send or receive a fax that didn't go through (at least - when I entered the # correctly).
The other benefit to it is, if the fax does not come through completed correctly or it fails, we are not wasting paper, ink/toner etc, the cost of the efax services now far outweighs the cost of admin staff and consumables.

How do you send a fax domestically and make it look like it came from an overseas fax machine number? Thanks a lot for you help. Have a good day.
