Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9848568A1] An interfacing device (12) for a facsimile device (10) is disclosed. The facsimile device is coupled by the interfacing device as a node to a local-area network (18). A facsimile sent by the facsimile device is received by the interfacing device, which routes the facsimile to a recipient electronic mail addressee over a communications network (26) as an attachment to an electronic mail, instead of only to a recipient phone number over a phone line. The attachment is preferably viewable at the recipient node using a viewing program installed on the recipient node.
