Did they gut the fax sw out of windows 8.1?
I've been using the fax sw that came with XP for years; now I use the fax sw that comes with Win 7.
You do need a FAX modem for the telco line. Since newer machines have PCI-express busses, I had to drop my USR 5610C modem and go to a USR Soft modem for a 1x PCI-e slot.
On receive, you need a printer if you want hardcopy. You can fax any image or letter composed on your PC via the windows sw.
If you want to fax a document that's already hardcopy, you need a scanner.
I use a Brother MFC-7840W all-in-one to scan and print.
(Also, it's my stand alone Fax machine.)

we don't have a fax modem so I was hoping that there was software out there that we could use to fax. we have a printer and scanner but don't need those as we have the hard copy of what we need to fax.
looks like it will have to be sent certified, return receipt which is less expensive than buying a fax modem
thanks for your help.
