I am using a fax modem to receive faxes "in my computer" instead of directly into the fax machine. The main reason is that 90% of faxes are spam and can be deleted instead of having to print them. While I do use a fax machine for outgoing faxes or if I turn off my pc for extended periods, generally my pc acts like a spam filter. Recently one modem failed after a power surge. While I still got a spare it seems that fax modems are an endangered species and I wonder what other alternatives are out there. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
