How should you send a fax by email via XOIP?

The fax message is saved as a PDF document and then added to an email message. Only the pdf document will be sent as a fax message. So not the text in the email subject or in the email itself.

Send a fax by email in three easy steps:

1. If you do not yet have an XOIP account, register now for a free XOIP account. There are no further obligations associated with this account. Furthermore, your privacy is taken very seriously, because XOIP is a registered telecom provider.

The easiest way is to use the same email address for both sending faxes and for the XOIP email account. If you want to enter a different email address for your XOIP account, you must set the “from” address in your profile when you request an XOIP account.

2. The fax message is saved as a PDF document and then added to an email message. Only the pdf document will be sent as a fax message. So not the text in the email subject or in the email itself.

3. Send the email to [email protected] Replace 311231234 with the fax number. The fax number must be entered in international format. So for the Netherlands, the fax number starts with 31. You can omit 00 or +. XOIP sends your fax to the fax number as indicated by you in the email address. In addition, you will receive a message from XOIP that the fax has been delivered or not.

If you have insufficient credit for a fax transmission, XOIP will ask you to top up your credit . The fax will only be sent when there is sufficient credit again.

Requesting an XOIP account and receiving fax messages is free. However, you do need sufficient credit to send fax messages. This amount is required to pay for outgoing telephone messages. You can determine the amount of credit that you need online yourself. XOIP does not require any bank details from you.

How can you send a free fax by email?

XOIP is often asked how a free fax can be sent by email.

Although it is not possible to send a fax completely free of charge from an email account, on the other hand there is the possibility of sending a fax document of 8 pages for a low one-off fee of about one euro!

fax can be sent via XOIP against a one-off payment. This amount is needed to cover the shipping costs. Furthermore, no membership or other obligations are attached to this. For example, sending a page to the US, Great Britain or the Netherlands costs 0.15 euro cents. The minimum credit that can be purchased in one go is Euro 1.30 or around 8 pages.

You can pay this amount by using Paypal, Ideal or by calling the XOIP 009 number. It also applies here that no ongoing subscription is required. No other obligations are attached to this either. You simply buy some Euro credit and you use this to send your fax messages. You also do not have to provide your bank details to XOIP.

XOIP Voicemail and forwarded calls.

XOIP Voicemail takes your messages while you are unavailable. If you transfer your calls to your mobile phone or Skype, XOIP Voicemail records a message if you do not answer. It is even possible to receive an XOIP message on your email.

In general, you can listen to and manage your voicemail by calling your own XOIP number.

With the social media function it is easy to record messages via your XOIP number. This is possible everywhere. You then share them with your network on Facebook or Twitter.

Finally, some general tips for XOIP use. 

Establish a virtual office in the Netherlands. Your customers call with a Dutch number, while you take the calls via Skype at your foreign location.

A fixed line is no longer necessary after purchasing an XOIP number. Save the monthly costs and use an XOIP number and answer your calls with Skype.

The different XOIP packages

XOIP offers you various packages . For example, there is an XOIP Basic package, an XOIP Plus package and an XOIP local package.

The service of the XOIP Basic package and the XOIP Plus package is free. You do not pay any subscription costs. And the costs of the calls are paid by the caller.

Some differences between porting and transferring numbers to XOIP.

There are a number of differences between porting and transferring numbers to XOIP. You can read a brief overview of this in the blog below.

For example, XOIP can take over your current fax number. This takes around 5-7 business days. It is important that you take an XOIP subscription for at least one year for this acquisition . If you want to port a number from an ISDN2 subscription, XOIP must copy all numbers from this subscription. If this is the case, you are requested to inform XOIP of this.

All XOIP services are available on ported numbers. However, after porting your former number is no longer available. Faxes and voicemail messages are sent to your e-mail. This will save you the costs that your existing telecom provider will charge if, for example, your telephone is diverted.

You can use XOIP as a voicemail and fax service when your numbers are forwarded to XOIP. This option applies to both private and business numbers. When someone calls you, your telecom company forwards this call to your XOIP number. Your telecom company charges costs for this. These are the same  costs that you would pay if you called your XOIP number from your phone. The person calling you pays the regular costs of a call to your telephone. You therefore pay the calling costs to your XOIP number.

You can also use XOIP to replace your mobile operator ‘s voicemail service . An interesting advantage is that, for example, you can listen to the messages that have been left on your mobile phone abroad via e-mail. You do not pay the high roaming costs.

By transferring your number to Skype , XOIP first tries to connect the call. If no connection is established, the call is forwarded to voicemail. If you do not forward your calls, XOIP automatically records voicemail for you.

XOIP can take over your current fax number.

Having your fax number taken over by XOIP takes around 5-7 business days. To do this, you will need to sign up for a one-year, or longer, XOIP subscription. If a number needs to be ported from an ISDN2-subscription, XOIP needs to take over all numbers from this registration. If this is the case, you will need to send a message to [email protected]. They will forward you the necessary information.

All XOIP services are available on ported numbers. After porting your number will no longer be available for use with your own fax machine or phone. Faxes and voicemail messages are forwarded to your email. You can find more information here.
