Bob wants to know if eFax is still a good option to get faxes without a landline. Leo says that eFax will convert your fax to a PDF digital copy. You can then sign it digitally and then resend via eFax. There's no need to have any other hardware.
Kenny needs to send a fax. How can he do it these days? Leo says that eFax is a great subscription service, if he has to send a lot of faxes. It doesn't make sense for a single fax, though. There are free fax services, which puts ads on the cover page. FaxZero is the one of them. Doctor Mom in the chatroom says that if he needs a HIPAA compliant fax service, Doximity is what he'll want.
Bernardo got the Triple Play bundle from Time Warner using the Internet, but he has to send them information from time to time via fax. Leo says that's because of them needing his signature. Leo does a rubber stamp JPG onto a PDF file and sends it to them.
Rick needs an option for sending faxes, because his fax machine broke. Leo says that eFax is an option that will also send the faxes to his email inbox. Don't buy another fax machine, use a fax service. It's about $20 a month.
On Leo's recommendation, Martin is using RingCentral for business phone services, but he can't get their analog fax machine to work with it. Leo says that fax machines don't work well with VOIP and Leo just uses RingCentral's fax service which routes the faxes to email. Martin's business is a doctor's office and it must be HIPPA compliant, which email won't be. He could try a lower speed, but that probably won't work either. Leo says that a dedicated phone line for faxes is probably the most reliable and secure method for faxes.
Joe had an older Mac that would allow him to send a fax through OS X, but his new computer won't do that in Mountain Lion. Leo says that was abandoned in the new version of OS X, so he can't do that function anymore with that old fax/modem. Joe needs a voice modem for faxing that's compatible with Mountain Lion. It'll likely need to be external. Leo prefers to use an online fax service, like eFax or MyFax.
