    Hi there, I was wondering if anyone knows of a company that has a service that will send the a form information to a fax. Sorry if this seems unclear, let me try to explain...

    A user fills out his/her address and what he/she would like to order and then click send; from that point, the information is faxed to the selected store/restaurant.

    If anyone knows of any site that offers this service (alright if it costs $) please get back to me!

    Thank you

    There are companies offering email-to-fax solutions (faxaway, faxsav, efax, etc.). So you can send your form content to email address and it will be transferred to fax.

    Hope this helps,
    Alan

    Thanks.... I contacted jfax.com and they told me that it would be possible if them form was converted to a tif file and then attactched to an email with the sento field as the faxnumber@jfax.com

    Any Idea how to do this!? This would greatly help me out! Thanks!

    P.S. I would also like to be able to Carbon Copy it to myself if that is possible

    They must be crazy

    There's no reason to go with their proposed solution. You can send plain text emails to address like faxnumber@company.com of the above mentioned companies (as far as I remember). You can find scripts for mailing form content to some email on any cgi (or whatever) script site or use remotely hosted forms.

    They might have thought he meant precompiled forms from companies like JetForms, Seagate (Crystal Reports) and DocuView. For an HTML form the simple faxing of text should work.
