A new set of proposed standards has been developed for integration of fascimile transmission and the Internet, and products based on these standards are now available. An Internet fax unit sends a TIFF file as an e-mail attachment to another Internet fax or a PC with an e-mail address. On receipt of such an E-mail, an Internet fax prints out the image data as a legacy fax machine does. The image data received by a PC can be displayed with a TIFF viewer, realizing paper-less fax communications.

A second-generation Internet fax will add color image transmission/reception capability and accept photo images directly from digital cameras. It has a new mode of operation in which it does not send a TIFF file as an e-mail attachment. Instead, the scanned image is sent to and stored in a predetermined WWW server, and the Internet fax unit just sends an e-mail to notify the recipient of the URL of the image.
