Setting up a virtual faxing server

Hi my boss wants me to look into an alternative way for her network faxing. She has a system where you email the fax and use the number as the mailing address to send them. she doesnt want to do it like that anymore and doesnt want to pay for a service. but she is willing to buy hardware and/or software. She basically wants to have a virtual faxing server. How would i go about doing this? please help I dont know much about faxing

Hi why not go for a SIMPLER solution

Buy a SCANNER instead --then simply email the scan. Some scanners can even do the email automatically -- they can store the email address so you just scan and it will email.

is it possible to setup a virtual server for faxing that is compatible with vmware esxi? because i think she wants to just use fax numbers. also dont people usually recieve faxes through their fax machine and not email? sorry if Im vague im just new to virtual servers, and fax machines.

that is what we are currently doing but the problem is that the current software that we are using doesn't work with the new exchange so we would need some updated software or a new way of doing things ie a virtual fax server

Ok so basically we have been sending .pdfs from desktop computers using 2003 exchange, and sending to physical fax machines and to email using a modem. But some customers only use just a fax machine, so we have to be able to send to fax machines and to email using a new method. We would like to shut down this old server running 2003, and use the new exchange on a virtual server. the problem would be that we cant hookup a modem to a virtual server, and we dont want to keep using an older server, so how could we make this possible? I apologize if this is confusing but I am just beginning to understand how this works
