How can I send a fax electronically from my pc and what software Windows or opensource can I use to do it?

I have a series of documents and pdf's I need to send to a company overseas. So you would think that it  would be something easy to send via email. Well in this case they want it sent fax my problem I do not have one. It seems like there might be a way to send one through my pc. However I do not know if it can be done over the internet or do I have to connect to my phone jack and push it through the old fashioned way.

Any ideas on how this could be done simply. Please advise. Thank you. Not sure where to put this one hope it is close.
