How to receive a fax: You need to receive an important communication on fax but you don’t have an active fax at home? No problem. On the Internet there is an online service completely in Italian that allows you to activate an urban telephone number and receive faxes via email via the latter.
Is called PopFax and is available in a free trial version lasting a few days. Once the trial has expired, you can decide whether to continue using it by subscribing to a pay subscription or abandon it without having to perform further operations. Using it is very simple, so ban the chatter and see immediately how to receive a fax on the PC thanks to it.
If you want to learn how to receive a fax using the PC, you must first connect to the PopFax website and click on the button first FREE TEST and then on Try it now to start creating a free trial account. On the page that opens, make sure there is a check mark next to the item FREE TEST and click on the button Go on (located at the bottom right) to access the registration form.
At this point, fill out the form that is proposed to you by entering all your data in the appropriate spaces, accept the conditions of use of the service by placing the check mark next to the two items at the bottom of the page, enter the confirmation code in the field Copy the characters you see and click on Go on to complete your registration.
Within seconds, an e-mail will be delivered to your inbox with the expiration date of the free trial of PopFax (usually about three days), the data to log in to the site and the telephone number (urban) that has been assigned to you for faxes.
From now on, you can receive a fax communicating to the sender the telephone number written in the PopFax e-mail (without the +39, which would be the international prefix of Italy). It will be like sending a very ordinary fax. Upon receipt of the fax, an e-mail will be sent to you with the notification of receipt of the document and the document itself in the form of a file PDF.
At the end of the free trial period, you can choose whether to continue using the service through a paid subscription (starting from 18.99 euros for three months) or to abandon it. In that case, you won’t have to do anything.
Finally, I remind you that there is a convenient free online service for sending faxes over the Internet for free. Is called Faxator and find all the information on how to use it in the article that I proposed some time ago on the subject.
