Editor's review

An advanced fax program, which lets its users easily create, send and receive faxes. Its uniqueness is in the ability to create faxes by scanning the needed information, and also print-to-fax from most Windows programs.

Features: EssentialFax allows users to create, send and receive faxes from their work machine and many Windows applications. An array of features makes creating and sending/receiving of a fax an easy operation. The scan to fax feature lets pages to scanned and sent to his outbox. He can then do a print to fax to actually get it sent out via the fax machine connected to the network or via the modem connected to a individual`s workstation. The print to fax is supported by a printer driver that helps fax to be sent from most Windows applications.

Received faxes are stored in the incoming fax table. You can then pick it up from the table, view it, print it or may be just delete it. The faxes can be converted to TIF format or a PDF document for storage on the machine. Whether individual user or those of a small business the program can help you manage your faxes in the Windows XP or Vista environments. It is compatible with the faxing system so that there is no additional set up required most often.

Overall: It has required features for a regular fax operation. It is easy to use. However a move towards so called internet fax or the email based faxes would have been more keeping with the times.
