Option 1: Buy yourself a FAX/MODEM PCI card and put in your computer, install scanner, laser printer and then with some software you can connect them to work as fax. The best thing in that option is that you can send high quality faxes and all faxes you receive are printed automatically and then stored in your computer as an image file such as TIFF or JPG.

Your other option is to buy a multifuncion printer 4 in 1:
Scanner
Printer
Copier
Fax

The second option is more cheap and easy to set up and use.

There is a solution, infact many but you need hardware such as scanner to send faxes and printer to print them if somebody sends fax to you. The option 2 which involves 4 in 1 machine costs no more than a 300$ infact. Check THIS out

If you want to use outlook, then you will need a PC PCI FAX/MODEM card installed, which means you have to use option one.
