To send a fax from your email:
- Open a new email.
- In the “To” field, add the recipient’s fax number with no spaces or special characters, followed by “@hellofax.com”.
- To send the fax to a US number, add 1 to the beginning of the fax number. For example, “email@example.com”.
- To send the fax to a non-US number, add 00 and the destination country code to the beginning of the fax number. For example, “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
- Add a subject line. This appears in the “To” field on the fax cover page.
