Or get a device that will just do the scan & email in one fell swoop. You
could even encrypt before sending and then the person would have to contact
you to get the key before opening it. Not 100% foolproof but it would
prevent the silly, oops, I sent your personal information to the wrong email
address/fax machine. Just think, you could have the convenience of a fax and
relatively secure storage of incoming and outgoing transmissions. Of course,
wanting to cling to 1970's technology is something I can understand. Who
wouldn't want to keep all those Bee Gees and Abba LP's?
