Prussia.Net has a new fax number, effective immediately.

+61 2 8569 2006

I know it’s tempting to leave updating your address book until “later”, especially as faxing is so rare these days, but it’s probably a good idea to get it out of the way sooner rather than later. Human nature, eh?

That said, the old fax number will remain active for at least one month.

We’re now using the online service mBox rather than an actual fax machine. Highly recommended.

mBox provides virtual fax and voicemail services. Incoming faxes are emailed to you as PDF files, and voicemails are emailed to you as MP3 audio files. Very handy.

Their pricing is good too.

Their entry-level MessageIn 200 plan, which is what we’re using, is good for 200 minutes per month of inbound calls. If you only use it for faxes, that’s around 400 pages per month—more than we’ll ever use. That’s $9.95 per month—cheaper than even just the phone rental on a fax line, let alone the other costs of a fax machine.

mBox has other services too — inbound and outbound SMS and outbound faxing, including bulk fax and SMS—but we haven’t explored them yet. They even have an iPhone application for checking your voicemail and faxes.

And no, we’re not getting paid to recommend them, we just thought we’d share the information.
