    Anyone on here use the phone over IP or eFax service where you have a fax number but the fax goes directly to your inbox?
    I know there was some type of phone service that would relay voicemails to your inbox in a similar manner.
    Any ideas?

    We use EasyLink (OpenText) at my place
    Seems to work well for us, but we have a ton of lines set up on it all around the country. Not sure if it would be a good option for a single line or a few lines

    We used Pangea, it's a paid service but it's stupid easy to set up.

    Google Voice does free voicemail transcription that can be emailed to you along with the recording itself.

    RingCentral bought eFax or some similarly named company when I had it, so my service was moved over to RC. Not a terrible service for ~$80/yr. They can fax and receive fax to/from emails.

    Looking into this ePhone thing again, everything seems to be running $20/month and up.
    Might have to use my cell phone for now.

    For phone, I use a raspberry pi running raspbx and didlogic.net's DID and termination services. I've got a grandstream 2-line SIP phone and a really old wifi sip handset that I think Linksys or D-Link made.

    If you want fax too, there's a plugin for FreePBX that will run on a raspberry pi that will receive faxes and email them to you. All for the cost of a DID and their license ($150.00 for 25 year license or $65.00 for a 1 year license) which allows you to fax in and out.
