Use email instead. I don't know of any way to FAX multiple numbers at the same time. By nature a FAX dials the phone/fax number and after making a connection then sends the packets. You could have some sort of auto dialer setup but it still will be one at a time.

No, you cant do it. Fax is a point-to-point communication system. You establish connection with the destination, send your message then disconnect. There is no intermediate handler as there is with Email. It is pretty secure method of communication. Because of its point-to-point nature it is difficult, but not impossible, to intercept a fax.

The only way you could automate it is with a script of some kind that reads phone numbers from a list and sends the same fax to each in turn but still it would only be one at a time.

In this day and age of ubiquitous Email I would have thought that fax was just about obsolete.

That software will FAX 500 number in succession, not at the same time. Big difference.

500 numbers will take at least 8 hours, possibly twice that long. That assumes the FAX is not long.

There is no problem. You can't FAX multiple numbers at one time unless you have multiple phone lines. End of story.

I dont mind if it only sends one at a time. I'm trying to take a listing of area contractors and send them my company brochure. I'm trying not to have to type in all the phone numbers from the book. I was hoping i could scan the pages and send the faxes from that.

I don't think there is any software to do that.

I don't know what kind of business you are in but I would advise you not to FAX unsolicited brochures to companies that you want to do business with.

I am a builder and I really get pissed when I get a FAX like that. I don't believe it will get you any business. Might have the opposite affect. Makes you look cheap and inexperienced.

I suggest that if you have no money for advertising that you make up some brochures on your PC and visit some companies personally. Have the brochure cover the details like what you can provide and any licensing and insurance information required.

Don't lie to anyone and don't be too pushy. If you can't get in to meet with the boss then leave a brochure with whoever you can.

Five good leads are better than 100 blind contacts.

(there is software mail b#@ber), i knew such a company a few years ago let loose a few 1000 faxes a night
its like email spam, OTHill is right people dont like it
it costs to print out a fax! especially a brochure .
It would be better to ring up each prospective customer
ask them if they want your info sending, then send it in affirmation.

At the IRS, we still rely heavily on faxes. Every unit has a fax that is used by taxpayers constantly. We tell the public, if you get an email that says its from the IRS, its a fake.

I use fax frequently. I don't appreciate unsolicited faxes though.

I have a TAD/fax card in my computer and use it for business.

Sending unsolicited faxes is against the law.

I agree with larry. My dad works as a DJ at a gospel radio station and when I'm there their fax machine is printing something all the time.

Thanks for that tip, but the fax that my dad gets at the radio station are things like the daily obituaries from the funeral home, most wanted list from the police department, and public service announcements, etc.

Basically goes to show that faxing is still in full swing. :)
