With GreenFax PC to fax program, you can send faxes to an email address, from an email account and through a web interface. In our hands-on tests, we found the online dashboard simple, yet user-intuitive. While GreenFax lacks some of the features we looked for in the best fax software, we had little trouble sending faxes from the desktop application. GreenFax does not offer an iPhone or Android app, yet we were able to successfully send a fax by logging into the dashboard from a mobile browser.
Faxing to an email address is the least secure option, so GreenFax provides a free method to send these faxes securely. To secure inbound faxes, you can send inbound faxes to a GreenFax account secured by an SSL security protocol.
