    Faxing From Computer
    I have a Macmini running Os X Snow Leopard 10.6.8.; 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3.

    I recently bought a new printer; HP Officejet 6500A Plus. Is it possible to fax directly from the computer or do I need a modem?

    Thanks,
    Helen

    Faxing requires a modem, either on your computer, printer or somewhere along the line. Even if you use an online service that accepts your file and then faxes it for you, they're using a modem to do that work..

    Does your new Officejet support faxing? If so, you can install the appropriate drivers and then fax from there..if not, you might want to explore some online faxing services depending on how often and how many faxes you want to send..

    You can fax with an Apple USB Modem attached to a phone line. Presumably, most any USB modem would work. I've used the Apple USB Modem in the past and it works just fine - that was several years ago circa OS X Tiger, so things may have changed... The modem should show up as a print/fax device. When you print a document, select the fax device (USB Modem) and enter the number you want to send to.

    It looks like this printer can fax. I know I can send faxes from my macs to the brother printer i have and it'll fax out. You'd have to check your manual

    I know I can fax from the document feeder with no problems. I can't test it from the computer because I don't have a fax number to fax to. I'll have to wait until I have a fax to send and I'll test it then. If I have any problems I'll get back to you.
