    You can't.

    To receive, you need would be a service that would convert the file to a format you could view on your Treo, Efax etc..

    There are a couple of steps that you might go through in order to get the fax to your Treo600. A service like j2.com will allow you to have the fax forwarded to your e-mail account. Then, an e-mail client (which resides on your Treo) like Snappermail (or the default palmone e-mail client) can fetch your e-mail onto your Treo.

    You also need a program on your treo that can read the fax. There are probably a few out there, the one I use is called Acid Image This will allow you to view .tiff files, which services like j2 and efax may send.

    J2 and Efax is the same company.

    To get tiff you will have to use the pay service.

    Acid Image Pro will view tiff, not Acid Image.

    Another alternative is Grxview Pro at half the price, but you"ll have to wait at least to the end of the month, till they fix the Arm plug-ins to work with the Treo properly.

    Also don't forget Photogather which supports Tiff files...and it's only $16 bucks!

    Thanks for pointing out that you need Acidimage Pro to view .tiff files, that is quite true. J2 and Efax are owned by the same company but they offer different services and subscription rates, so cingularguy might still want to check them out.

    "To get tiff you will have to use the pay service." <---Are you sure about this?

    I can't get efax to send more than a coverpage from the Treo. I would like to fax a .doc file from Docs to Go, but it doesn't work - I get the coversheet only. Does this work for anyone?
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    Try WinFax from Symantec. Your fax machine (or computer) receives the fax and forwards it to your e-mail address. Works good...

    Yes, otherwise they are .efx, J2's format.

    If you don't mind me asking, what palm photo app do you use to view .tiff files, and have you ever tried to view a .jfx (j2's format) with your palm viewer application? If so, what happens?

    I use Acid Image Pro to view in tiff.

    I like all the features of Grxview Pro, but won't use it till they get the Treo Arm version fixed.

    I really didn't like the use, feel, or interface of Photogather at any price.

    Everyone has there preference.

    There are so many fax sevices out there, I have had Efax, J2Fax for at least 6 years now.

    If there is no registered file type for .efx etc., it just won't open.

    I remember seeing a .prc for Efax but it was years ago ?

    Thanks for your response. Have you ever tried just changing the ".efx" to ".tiff" (in properties) and then opeining it up in acid image pro?

    1. J2.com - Free service

    2. Use J2.com free account to fwd faxes to your e-mail account

    3. Use e-mail app (I use Snappermail) to pull e-mail to your Treo

    4. Use acid image pro to view faxes

    Check out Maxemail.com, "lite" plan is $15 a year and you can send or receive faxes from the web or via email, if using email, they can be received as either tiff or pdf format.

    Sorry folks, .efx files are *not* simple .tiff's in disguise. I just tried changing the extension on a .efx file, and it wouldn't open in either IRFanView or Photoshop.

    There's always PalmVNC; send/receive faxes on your home PC, controlled from your Palm.

    Although, if I understand correctly, the Treo 600 does use something like modem technology...I would suspect that someone could create an application to do this.

    okay, so i signed up for j2 fax and it goes to my treo email, but the message is truncated and it does not give me tha attachment. i assume that acid image pro takes the place of j2 messeneger for the plam, but why is my atachment not going through?
    thanks

    Have you tried this with a .jfx file (jfax), what happens? I use this in conjunction with snappermail and acid image pro, for free incoming faxes that I can view on the T600.

    This looks like a pretty reasonably priced service, does it work well?
