How to Send a Fax in Word 2007

By Leonardo R. Grabkowski

The Internet has changed the way we perform simple business and personal tasks, including sending faxes. Microsoft Word 2007 allows you to send a fax to any fax machine without having a fax machine or a printer. Word 2007 can integrate an approved fax service into your Microsoft Word 2007 office interface, saving you time and money.

Step 1

Open the document you wish to fax. Make sure the document is complete and ready to be sent.

Step 2

Click on the Windows Office tab on the upper-left hand side of the screen. Scroll down and select "Send." A list of available options will appear. Choose "Send Internet Fax." If this is your first time using the fax service in Microsoft Word 2007, you will need to sign up with a service provider. A browser window will open and take you to the list of available Microsoft Word 2007 providers.

Step 3

Choose your provider from the list and follow the directions to set up your account. You will need to provide a valid email address and your billing information, so have your credit card or bank account number handy. Once your account is set up, the service will be integrated into Word 2007. Return to your document and choose "Send" and then "Internet Fax" again. Enter the recipients information, attach your document and click "Send" to fax it.

Tips & Warnings

  • Browse through the service providers and find the service plan that works best for you.
  • The fax providers on the Microsoft page are the only services able to be integrated with Word 2007.
