Can I send an email to a fax number?

Since I do not know the e-mail address of the person I want to contact, but don't have a fax number, can I compose an email in Thunderbird and send it to the fax number? Do I need an add-on or a special format in ' send to '?


In general, a message sent to a fax machine requires a phone call and e-mail clients do not know how how do phone calls.

A few years ago, it was quite common for ISPS to offer a limited number of free calls, usually of SMS messages to mobile phones, sometimes faxes IIRC. Most of these promotional services seems to have disappeared quietly.

There used to be a network (PTC ring a Bell) who took a system where you could send in a fax server near your destination and that they would make the last mile, the fax for you, call for free, but it always happens with advertising added in.

So, overall, it is not trivial to send a fax from an e-mail client.

There are still companies who do this, almost always for a fee. It is usually a bilateral agreement; you receive one number to which others can send faxes, that end up in your e-mail Inbox, and you can use the same number to send faxes by e-mail.

The one that I've used in the past.

It's not a recommendation.

Not so long ago, we all had a modem built into our computers. This, when it is connected to a regular landline, with the right software, can allow your computer work like a fax machine. Of course, every fax you send you a phone call just like running a real fax would be costs. Of course, Windows XP can send a fax was built in; you dial in a word processor or text editor, and then select the fax as the printer device. A dialog box invites you for the fax number to send it to. As far as I know, this feature is still present in Windows 7 and 8.

If you do not have a fixed phone, mobile phone can offer something similar.

    Nothing will stop a PDF to be edited or tampered with; a few things will make it harder. That's why we use digital signatures. They don't stop editing, they mean that any change will be recognized as after the signature, so it is an unauthorized change. The signatures are on the interception of fakes, do not stop them.

  • How can I send an email from abroad in Belgium?


    I know this sounds like a stupid question but I am puzzled & in the hope that perhaps there is something more necessary that simply entering it personal email from someone.
    I have a family member in Belgium who is on his deathbed, and his lawyer called me to ask I send an email from my computer in order to fax or scan paperwork.

    He gave me the following email & I called back 3 times to make sure that I understand, because he came back as "undeliverable".

    * E-mail address is removed from the privacy *  (no limit) I tried with www. & even different computers & browsers. I am 100% positive, I got his e-mail correctly, but for some reason, I can't send from my office here in California.
    My email has not changed in 12 years: * address email is removed from the privacy *.
    Does anyone have any idea who need to use a special protocol for California in the Belgium?

    Thank you kindly, regarding Alan
    He continued to come as 'undeliverable '!

    The delivery status Notification (DSN) that you receive will tell you why the message could not be delivered. Different servers use different methods to provide a nondelivery report (NDR); It may be in the displayed part of the DSN or sent as an attachment (often with the *.dat extension), or you may need to see the message source to find. Looking for a line beginning Code of diagnosis.

    If the NDR is an attachment, open it with Notepad to read. If you do not see a nondelivery report anywhere, select the DSN message in the list and press Ctrl-F3 to reveal the source of the message. Look carefully for the Code of diagnosis in a section called something like Content-Type: message/delivery status. If you do not understand it, post here if someone can help you interpret.

  • Since the upgrade to 31.1.0, I can't send an email with an attachment. I'm under OpenSuse 13.1 on KDE. How can I fix?

    If I try to send an email with an attachment or a picture inserted, it starts to send with a progress bar that will read a 80 to 95% completion and then stay there until it times out after a few minutes. I get this error: failed to send the message.
    The message cannot be sent because the connection to the server of SMTP expired. Try again or contact your network administrator.
    I use the same provider of e-mail for several years. This works for emails of simple texts without problem. If I try to transfer or to respond to an email, I get the same error.
    How can I fix?

    Thank you


    OK, I thought about it. As I was going through the configuration editor, I saw the outgoing server settings. It made me wonder if something had changed. I went to my provider and reinforced through their list and found where mine differ. If the update for thunderbird changed something or verizon changed something.
    Thanks for the comments.
