We have no direct way to stop or control junk faxes that might be sent to you. Your first course of action is look for a removal number on the fax and call to have your fax number taken off their list. We also ask that you please forward a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we see the same company sending to multiple users we will try and contact them directly and ask that they stop. This is often a long and difficult process that may or may not have any positive effect. If we can determine the fax number sending the junk faxes we can also have that number blocked from our system.

Can I receive faxes while traveling?
One of the greatest advantages of our service is the ability to receive faxes when you are on the road. You can now have access to your fax mail anywhere that you have access to your email.
Send A Fax Using Email
With our outbound faxing service, you can easily send faxes using any email application. Simply set the To address as [faxnumber]@fax.flatratefax.com and type up your email message as normal. The [faxnumber] entry in the To address is any valid fax number including the country code - that is 1 for U.S. numbers (ex. email@example.com). Besides the body of the email, you can also attach documents to the email that will be formatted as seperate pages in the fax. The attachments must conform to our supported document types. Emails must be sent from the address listed on your account. Look under My Account to verify which email address should be used.
