    When I had Omnisky , there was like a EFAX web clipping version which allowed to compose faxes on the run. This is one feature that I really missed. Anyone know of any plug ins that will allow this on the TREO via blazer????.

    You don't need any additional applications, actually. You can send a fax via eFax through regular E-mail. Here's the eFax info on it: http://www.efax.com/help/mailfax/mf_email.html

    Efax does not currently work with the palm OS platform. I t would be great if it did. My Treo would be complete! I have inquired with Efax and sent a request to the development dept.

    I had my EFAX PQA working with a Handspring visor and a Omnisky wireless modem. But for some reason I cannot get to connect with my TREO 300 loaded with the EFAX PQA>

    Didn't know that it existed until now, but here it is: http://go-concepts.pda.tucows.com/pa...iew/59965.html . I'm going to install it now and see if it works.

    help me understand the need for eFax via the Treo - ? I think the last time I sent a fax to someone (which was a paper contract, and thus not relevant to an electronic device) was 2 yrs ago.

    Tell me the application. Do you just want to fire off some quick text to someone via fax? Just curious....

    You may very well not have a need for it. But it's like VNC, etc. in a crunch it can help you. I would never use the Treo VNC client as a primary tool, it's way too tough on the small screen. But I've restarted databases, and services using it several times now. Similarily I would never use the eFax PQA as my primary eFax viewer; however, if I'm on the road and need to look at something that I've been sent - before forwarding it on - then it fits the bill. It's all about making life easier. If I have an app, irregardless of what it is, that helps me (at any time) then it's worth it.

    My soap box stand aside... I haven't gotten the eFax PQA to work yet - it keeps timing out.

    I have used EFAX to send faxes to small companies that want to receive an authorization for an order or something via "hardcopy" and a fax has always help me when I am out on the road. I have also companies send me faxes on issues, but when I know I will not be back in my office I just give them my EFAX and voila I received on the road.

    It might not suit everyone, but EFAX and PFax by Rovenet work for me

    so do you guys mainly use it as a reader for faxes that have come into your eFax mailbox? A quick check of the doc, while mobile?
    I used to use eFax before, but really didn't get a lot of faxes...so there you go. I always want to see how other people function.

    Just to make everyone aware, EFAX will not work with the TREO and I received an e-mail while back that they would not support the TREO, don't ask me WHY??.

    That is why! in a previous post I indicated Rovenet PFAX as that is what I am using at the present time.

    Can't seem to get it to log in. I get an error code:
    "Gateway Timeout (504)".
    Any ideas?

    That is the error you will always get. So If I were you I would send an e-mail to the EFAX fols to see if like that they will support the TREO or just get PFAX

    Thanks,
    I've called them on a number of occasions and asked when, if ever would they support a mobile solution. They didn't know but would forward my suggestion to development.

    Pfax works good for you?
    They charge a per fax fee like Efax right?

    Thanks

    I use efax as my one and only fax, both for incoming and outgoing. I often use it to receive signed contracts, NDAs, etc. On the incoming ones, I usually convert them to .pdf so I can send them on to others. On the outgoing, I simply open the doc, go to "Print", and choose the efax conduit. Presto, change-o!

    Would be really cool to be able to read them from my 300...i'm not holding my breath, though.

    PFAX subscription opens up an account with $15 and then each fax you send is payed out of that anount.

    I don't really care so much to send faxes. What I really want is the ability to receive and view faxes on my Treo. Reading the software description of PFAX I can assume that you can read faxes sent to the Treo?
    The only other way that I have figured out the best way to receive my efax's on the Treo is to use an email client like basejet that supports tif files. That way I can have the efaxs sent as tif attachments. Now unfortunately my problem is that I need an email client that supports SSL and SMTP authentication...neither BAsejet nor Snappermail allow that unless I missed something.
    Basejet supports .tif files and Snappermail doesn't...yet
