FaxCenter is a small ANSI C/POSIX program that sends and receives faxes using almost any fax modem (internal or external).

Cocoa eFax started as a simple front end, but has really progressed into much more. You can send and receive faxes in multiple formats. You can scan and send, you can send quicknotes, attach coversheets, and much more.
What's New
Version 1.5:
  • Fixed the issue where faxes were sent out inverted on Mac OS X 10.3 and earlier
Requirements
  • PPC
  • Mac OS X 10.2 or later
  • Modem

I've had this since it was efax and after a few minutes of set up and one failure,I retried it and it works flawlessly with the exception of getting email notifications.
To the poster that wrote about the complexities of fax software,in my most blond moments I've figured this stuff out going back to the first version of Windows for Workgroups.
Perhaps you are just not that technically inclined. I have friends like that. :-)

Somewhat slow, and not altogether streamlined or intuitive, but it works reliably and is very affordable.

Works very well.

Only thing which did not work, was the notification by email option (and sending the fax to an email address).

Hopefully this feature works in the next version...

I've always had good luck with this app myself, and registered it a few months ago. To the person(s) who are having problems, is there any chance that Fax Center is conflicting with the built-in Panther fax options is System Preferences?

I have mine turned off.

This App. has worked for me since OS 9 and I use Panther's Fax but I don't get a copy of the sent faxes like I do with FaxCenter. Also when I email for tech support I get a response in a day or so thats a whole lot more than I can say for most developers or major companies. I say give this app. a chance and see what your doing wrong and not blame the app. for all your problems.

Version 1.4 comments:

Small Fax app with potential, as we all hold our breath and wait for an OSX version of GlobalFax, and NO, FaxSTF is NOT the answer...

BTW, when you send a "QuickNote", where is it saved? Whooosh, its gone. I do have FaxCenter setup correctly, so this baffles me.

The phone number database is changed between version 1.3.2 and 1.4? Is there any advantage to this for me, and is there any repercussions?

I'll stick to 1.3.2 for now, until further reviews and clarifications come forward...

Sorry, but I can't agree with these glowing reviews. I'm an experienced user on a good, clean installation of 10.3.2 on a G4 1.25, and I could not get this sucker to receive a fax in a half hour. I observed at least four distinct eye-roller, what-the-hell-now behaviours along the way.

I suspect that I could probably get it working if I spent a couple hours at it. But the software has already FAILED by then, you know? Some functionality has to be immediate to be worthwhile. If it doesn't work right away, it basically doesn't work.

What is it about fax software, anyway? There must be complexities I know nothing about. Apparently it's a very difficult thing to do, because in ten years of trying I have yet to use fax software that I could trust. I expect Ben Mackin is a fine developer (he's certainly put together a nice interface), yet he is not, apparently, able to make fax software that just... works. I'm beginning to think that no one can.

My solution: I'm going to give up faxing. It gets less useful every year anyway.

Paul, I have to disagree with you. I have been using this software for a while now and i've had no problems. If you are using 10.3.x, you should go to the site and download the patch for Panther as Macupdate tends not to post the patches sometimes.

The best Fax App. Available better than any I've had great support also. Fast answers via email. Will probably stick with this app. Even after installing 10.3!
