    You can search for a service provider that fulfills your request.

    For example: efax.com

    or https://www.interfax.net

    with a web api.

    • Hi Eyal,

      normally you will get detailed information about the e-mail format you have to use from your provider.

      We send a Datawindow in a smtp mail as PDF attachment that will be send/forwarded as a fax to the recipient.

      You will see, this is not a big deal.

      If you are using a web service api, this should also work flawless.

    Hi Eyal;

    1) contact your local Telco provider to use their email to fax service. In my area for example, I use Telus ... Small Business Internet Fax | TELUS Business

    2) For SMTP example code from PB, check out Roland's example ... Topwiz Software - EmailSMTP
