Fax from Your BlackBerry

If you have access to an email-to-fax gateway, you can send your messages to the nearest fax machine—in effect, “printing” an email from your device.

Suppose you’re at a client site and just received a lengthy email on your BlackBerry. You would like to have a hardcopy of the important message, but you aren’t able to print from your BlackBerry. The client has several fax machines that are at your disposal, but you can’t fax from a BlackBerry—or can you?

There are publicly available services that allow you to email to a fax machine. A lot of companies set up their own email-to-fax gateway services using software such as Right Fax. If you have access to such a gateway, just find the phone number of the closest fax machine and send the message by using your fax addressing scheme. Most email-to-fax gateways have an addressing scheme that is not easy to remember. These days with email as ubiquitous as it is, most people don’t use outbound fax gateways frequently enough to be able to remember how to form the address when sending a fax. There is a simple program from http://www.software-for-blackberry.com that you can configure to remember the fax addressing scheme for your fax service so when you want to send a fax, you can simply access an option on the trackwheel menu and choose a recipient that has a fax number from your address book.
