Auto send received XP fax to email account

Hi

Is there anyway I can auto send a windows XP received fax to an email account ?

I've a remote office where there is nobody most of the time.
I've my PC with windows XP PRO receiving faxes.
When someone goes there he check for received fax.
Problem is that somme of them are urgent and I'll only see them on the next day.

What I need is that when a fax is received it must be redirected to my email account.
As I have a "UMTS" "3G" mobile data card on my laptop I can check my email anywhere and everywhere and it would solve my problem.

I know exchange server can do this but I've only one PC with XP Pro on my office.

Can XP do this or is there any application that would do this running on my xp box ??

Please don't send me to buy a very expensive one ok, my budget is not very big :-)

Thank you

Carlos

have you looked into systems such as jfax.com or efax.com ?

the fees are very reasonable, and i think would suit your situation nicely.

Hi

thank you, but for those services I would have to tell my clients and suppliers to send fax to a diferent location
and I have this fax number for a long time I can't change it now.

I need to redirect my windows xp received faxes to my email account

ok, how about fax4office:
http://fax4outlook.4team.biz/default.asp


from its documentation:
"      All your sent and received faxes will be stored in MS Outlook "Sent Items» and "Inbox" folders. You can receive faxes in your ”Inbox” and open (view), reply or forward them to other fax recipients or e - mail addresses like regular e - mail."

that being that, you can create a simple rule in outlook to say 'when received a message from [fax thing] forward it to [another email address]'

... there is a free trial, but the entire program costs only $19.95 (one time charge)

if you like your fax number at the remote office, permanantly forward the phone number to a jfax.com account.
