If you need to swap faxes, relax.
Most computers have modems that fax.
They don’t cost very much
And can add a nice touch
For both Windows computers and Macs. —

Modem (FOLDOC: Free Online Dictionary of Computing)
Modem (portmanteau of modulator-demodulator) is a hardware device that converts data into a format that can be transmitted from computer to computer (historically over telephone wires). A modem modulates one or more carrier wave signals to encode digital information for transmission and demodulates signals to decode the transmitted information. The goal is to produce a signal that can be transmitted easily and decoded reliably to reproduce the original digital data. Modems can be used with almost any means of transmitting analog signals from light-emitting diodes to radio. A common type of modem is one that turns the digital data of a computer into modulated electrical signal for transmission over telephone lines and demodulated by another modem at the receiver side to recover the digital data. — Wikipedia
