It is easy to fax from the Mac.

1. Get an All-in-One Printer/Copier/Scanner/Fax such as the Epson WorkForce WF-2540 Wireless for $89 or the Brother MFC7360N with built-in networking.
2. In the Printers & Scanners, add the printer as a Fax.
3. Scan your document
4. Print to the Fax printer driver - selecting the phone number of your choice from your address book.

If you are lucky, to send and receive faxes:

1. Install Parallels Desktop
2. Install Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server ($69) in Parallels
3. Install PageSender Fax Center in Snow Leopard Server. Share the Fax Printer
4. Attach a FaxModem such as the USRobotics USR5637 56K modem to the Mac.
5. Print to the Page Sender Fax Printer driver.

Note that if you have updated all along from 10.6 to 10.9, PageSender still works excellently for receiving Faxes in Mac OS X 10.9 via a FaxModem.

I simply send faxes via the All-In-One Printer's Fax function - which is cheap these days. And Epson and Brother make smart ones which can store jobs in memory as a job is being sent.

Or if I want the fax sent unattended, I simply print it from the Mac to the Fax Driver of the All-In-One Printer.

@ Psychiatry: thanks for the extremely informative comment. I have a Brother 7460MFC but it doesn't show up in the window when I try to add it as a fax. In fact, nothing shows up. I click the + in Printers & Scanners, then click the Fax option at the top, but nothing shows up, all fields are grayed out. I can't manually type in a name and the "Use:" dropdown doesn't contain any choices. I'm on a late 2012 Mac Mini running 10.9.1.

Any tips?

@ Prince_Isaac:
Install the printer driver as you would a regular printer. The fax functionality is built into the printer-driver itself.

All you have to do is to Print the document after setting the Print-Dialog box option to fax:

1. When ready to fax, simply print.
2. When the print-dialog box comes up, go to the layout pop-up menu (this is often renamed as your app's name)
3. Select the "Send Fax" menu item.
4. The Fax options will then show up. Set the destination.
5. Then press the "Print" button.

There you go!

@ Psychiatry... Splendid! Just tried it out and it worked as advertised.

You gotta love this forum for all the things you learn here. Your assistance is really appreciated.

For those with limited needs to send faxes, FaxDocument is the least costly service for sending faxes via computer.

It costs $20 for sending 25 different faxes. This means a FLAT FEE of 80 cents per fax, no matter how many pages are in the fax. And the remaining unused faxes do not expire. They can be used on other days.

Thus, this is a bargain compared to other similar computer fax apps that send faxes over the internet.

The problem with this app and many others like it is that your Mac requires a modem which most Macs post 2005 don't have unless you've bought an external one. You can find out a good overview of how to fax from mac using online services as well as how to fax for free here:

My solution for faxing on the rare occasions I need it is to have bought a USB fax modem for around $20 and use the software built in OSX to do the job with my home phone line. To receive a fax just ask the sender to call me back and activate receive in OSX. Simple, clean and does not involve any other software, commercial or otherwise. My only gripe is that some time ago Apple chose to disable its own fax modem that had been working fine for years, but is now a paperweight. I am currently using a US Robotics modem with no issues when plugged into a USB expander port.

Is your home phone line copper or VoIP? I've heard fax machines don't really work with VoIP.

Jimw
+0

My phone line is copper. I do not believe in VOIP for home use. It is based on Internet servers which from my understanding have a much higher risk of failure in an emergency or disaster situation than copper. Providers try to sell VOIP based on pricing, bells, and whistles because VOIP is much cheaper to maintain and distribute once the basic infrastructure is in place- i.e. profits.

If I am caught in an emergency or disaster situation II what the best chance of reaching assistance if I need it. That technology is still the proven technology of copper.

i prefer "e-mail to fax" gateways. No ned for hardware, but costs a monthly fee.

Jimw

I simply do not do enough faxing to justify a monthly fee as I send out land receive less then 6 a year.

Apple did not disable its own fax modem. Apple's fax modem was so primitive it had to be supported heavily by custom-designed system fax software that emulated a fax modem.

Essentially this "fax modem" actually is only a connector to the phone line and cannot function on its own in any operating system, Windows or otherwise.

Apple chose to no longer write custom fax modem emulation software for it since the existing printer drivers already support REAL fax modems and all-in-one fax-copy-printer machines.

What Psychiatry said may be true but the point is that Apple purposely disabled a piece of hardware in the process that people paid for and did not give them any compensation for it. That is not a way to keep happy customers!

A typical, overdone, cheap ploy calling this free since it costs and arm and a leg for the service side. And shame on MacUpdate for playing along with this tired old game.

You get 0 Star for a "non free APP" and 1 Star for the concept.

Man, I wish FAX would finally die! It´s like you have all that mobile phones n stuff, but there are still some people who force you to go to that stand-up phone, pull the crank handle and wait for somebody to connect you. FAX is so damn annoying. Just try to boykott that.

Anyway, the app seems to be a solution for all others. ; )
