I have a computer with Windows 7.

It is connected to the Internet via a router and DSL.

What I have found on the Internet regarding this seems to assume I have my phone somehow connected to my computer. I live in Germany and the phone is plugged into completely different box and so has nothing to do with the computer at this point.

How can I simply write a Word document (Office 2003 and Office 2010 beta) and send it to a fax number? e.g. are there any online services that do this, either free or payable via PayPal?

Since I do not have a phone line anymore I use faxzero when I need to send a fax. Although there are a few draw backs

Ad on the cover page

Fax 1 document - maximum 3 pages

Maximum 2 free faxes per day

Two ways:

  1. You obtain a DSL line filter suitable for connecting a standard voice telephone to the DSL line, then connect an analog fax modem to the line through the line filter.

  2. Use the Internet. See this extensive coverage:
