EssentialFax 1.79.03

EssentialFax is powerful fax software, which enables its users to create, send and receive faxes easily.

Thanks to the range of options, creating a fax has never been easier. With the help of a Scan-to-Fax option, the user can scan the needed pages and send them to the Outbox as a new fax. Once the fax is in the Outbox, it may be viewed, printed or sent. Additionally, EssentialFax provides its users with a printer driver, which allows them to print to fax from most Windows programs.

Once the fax has been received, it is stored in the Incoming fax table, so that users can handle it according to their needs: view, print or delete. The program offers its users a TIFF & PDF support, which enables them to store faxes in industry standard TIFF, and export them to Adobe PDF.

EssentialFax was tailored to meet the needs of individual users and small businesses using Windows Vista or Windows XP. The intuitive, user-friendly interface along with a wide range of features makes EssentialFax the clear choice in fax software. The program uses the modem in your computer and a regular telephone line to send faxes. The uniqueness of EssentialFax is in its compatibility: in 99% of cases, no special setup or further configuration is needed to start sending and receiving faxes.
