MyFax allows users to securely send and receive faxes via e-mail. Since faxes are sent and received using existing email accounts and the Web, the need for fax machines, fax servers, fax supplies, dedicated lines, and costly long-distance charges is eliminated.
my1voice enables calls to be answered by a virtual auto-attendant, and personalized and professional greeting messages can be created. With the call forward Find Me/Follow Me feature, incoming calls can be forwarded to additional phone numbers in sequential order or all at once so that they are never missed. Voicemail messages can be stored and managed online just like email, and you don't need to switch phone services when signing up.
