Fax to email

I have been working with GoDaddy for nearly 17 years now and didn't know they had Fax services.  I have been using eFax, Phone, and others for their e-mail to fax services.  Has anyone used this service from GoDaddy, and if so, is it worth paying the high price they have on it?  Am I better off using my other choices?  


Also, I have my own dedicated server (I actually have about 25 around the world) and was wondering if someone knew how to set up a service like that?  Is it basically a PBX type set up or is it more advanced?  I can't find much information or research on this, so I was counting your replies!

Wow, I haven't sent a fax in years. I forgot that GoDaddy has Fax Through Email plans but that is a handy thing if you are a frequent faxer. Now I use my 800 number service provider and their fax via email but that is just because it is built into the 800 number package. As I said, I don't fax much but if I had to that is what I would use.

We have a couple of open source PBXs here that have the capability to fax. I don't know that I'd trust my business to an Asterisk box but depending on the need that might be worth a look? Let us know what you come up with.

...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.

Hello @pcattrell.


Our Fax Through Email service works for United States and Canada fax numbers only. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.

Are the faxes sent encrypted?



Do I need a go daddy email account to have the fax service?



Hey @scotts

To answer the first question, yes. Faxes sent and received should be secured through this service. As for needing an email with us; not required, but you would be missing out on seamless integration features with our Workspace email accounts.
