I have used internet faxing with great results.  I tied an ethernet capable
fax machine to a domain name and we sent  and received picture-perfect faxes
(fax at mycompany.com).  I don't recall the exact model but it was a Panasonic.
We also had a high-end (not cheaper HP) all-in-one that faxed from the copy
machine w/ similar great results.

After installing Asterisk with PRI lines we are looking to get rid of our
analog lines.  We *were* going to keep 1 or 2 for faxing but it would be
nice to get rid of them all (although I really, really like HylaFAX).  I've
looked at lots of options to FAX with Asterisk but the cost for an
additional T1 card and channel bank is prohibitive.  Then it occurred to me
- outsource it.  It's *so* unlike me to consider outsourcing anything, but
this sounds like it could be just what we need.

FAX is *very* important to our business.  I'm hoping that your input will
help me find a reliable service.  So, I'm asking, have any of you had good
experiences with a FAX service and could you recommend them?
Are they web based?  Email based?  Reliable?  Can they use our existing
numbers?  Do they require client software that only runs on Windows?
