Internet fax uses the internet to receive and send faxes.
Traditional faxing involves sending a scanned copy of a document (a facsimile) from one fax machine to another, over the phone network. Internet faxing (or "online faxing") is a general term which can refer to one of several methods of achieving this over the Internet - with a goal of both reduced costs and increased functionality over traditional faxing.
Depending on the specific method/implementation, advantages of using the internet can include
1. no extra telephone line required for the fax
2. paperless communication, integrated with email
3. send and receive multiple faxes simultaneously
4. reduction in phone costs
Note that depending on which method is used, suitable equipment and/or the use of a gateway is required.
