    How can I convert files to send as faxes?


    I installed a program to send faxes: Faxmail.2.3 from:
    The Phone Company (TPC.INT) Homepage
    With this program I can send faxes through their server.
    This program allows me to send files as text, postscript, or images.
    I will probably be sending files as text or OpenOffice documents.

    What file formats can I use for faxes?
    How can I convert files to these formats to send faxes?

    I have imagemagick-6.4.3_10-i486-1 installed on my computer and looked
    at the site:
    ImageMagick: Convert, Edit, and Compose Images
    but I need help in using this program, or is their something else I can
    use?

    Thanks

    Convert what to to what?

    If you say you'll probably send it as text, well then it should already be good to go. Just send the file.

    I also need to send Openoffice documents: Writer, Impress, Calc.
    I'm not familiar with how to send faxes, but I think these files need to be sent in a
    format that a fax machine will accept.

    Thanks

    Well, a fax machine simply accepts a picture. So check into what your fax program can accept. Probably should be able to fax right from openoffice. I'm sure they're a plug in for it. Search for it on google.
