A quick google gave www.fax2email.co.za, at which you only pay for the 
faxes you sent.
This looks good.

Do care to note incoming faxes are usually free, outgoing though are 
not, (some service providers charge a monthly fee).
Also you have to at least regularly receive a fax or the incoming 
service expire.

  When working on a computer you have to know enough:
  To fake what you don't know.
  Google what you can't fake.
  How (and when) to 'motivate' the computer to do what Google won't tell.
