    Hi all,

    Here's an overview of what's possible at the moment. If you don't have a multi-function printer that supports faxing there are some USB fax modems that should work if the drivers are compatible. The Apple fax modem has been discontinued. Some can still be found but seem not to work reliably with Mountain Lion.

    If you only need to send the occasional fax check out some of the services listed at the bottom of that article.

    There you go Sly even with the Apple USB modem thought it was a dodo under OS X.8 as my ADSL ISP does not even offer a dialup service anymore.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    There are numerous well-rated fax apps in the Mac App Store. All are free (but the faxing costs) and prices seem to average about $2 for a fax of up to five pages.
