Anyone know of a way to send a fax for free. I need to send about 400 pages to a government fax machine, because they say email is unsecure and won't allow Dropbox or such to be used. It has PII, but I don't want to pay for it if possible.

Good luck. With 400 pages it won't be free. Also the paid ones have # of pages monthly limit. https://www.quicksprout.com/best-online-fax-services/

It is going to be cheaper to mail it.

If sending to the government, I'd make sure somebody has to sign for it.

You need to have/borrow a copier/scanner with a phone connection, then have/borrow a landline connection and then fax it over.

Ask your friends to find out who still has a landline, a lot of people keep one for emergency use.

Even then it's risk. Doesn't Fed Ex have some kind of registered delivery? Although, I'm sure that would be a few bucks.

The Postal office Priority Mail does give you options to add registered delivery with return receipt or to add insurance on the content.

for 400 pages, none of them EFAX will be free and even the paid ones will have limit on how many pages you can fax each month.

Take a couple of days off and hand carry it...

It must be important.

Who the hell still sends stuff via conventional fax machines? Oh right...this is the Federal government we are talking about.
