Faxing from the web

    Anybody know of a good, reliable service that would provide faxing from the web? By that I do not mean a site where you can upload your files to them and they fax them. I mean where I can dynamically create content to include in a fax an then a form on the site itself is what sends the content as a fax to an actual fax machine.

    Ideas?

    Thanks!

    Did you find anything? I have a client who has asked on and off for years for this sort of feature for his e-advocacy site.

    There's the Interfax service
    http://www.interfax.net/en/dev/webservice/index.html
    (Prices at http://www.interfax.net/scripts/prices.asp?lang=en)

    I've never used them, but they offer a SOAP interface with code samples for .NET, php, etc.

    I recall GoDaddy offering something, though I don't know if they offered some sort of programming interface or if it was more like a consumer service (a la eFax).

    I'm truly surprised that I can't find anything for Skype. In conjunction with a Skype Out account, this seems like a completely do-able service, just beyond my programming skills to create.

    My client is going to give http://www.faxaway.com/ a try. Given they don't have a single fax number, this seems to be a great way to send dynamic faxes to dynamic fax numbers.
