MyFax Introduces Spring '07 Enhancements Including Groundbreaking Storage Capacity and Expanded Local Area Codes for Businesses

    MyFax takes Internet faxing to a premium standard with no additional

    OTTAWA, April 16 /CNW/ - MyFax(TM), one of the leading business Internet
fax services, today announced the release of its MyFax Spring '07
enhancements, which includes several customer-inspired enrichments to the
award-winning faxing solution. Users benefit from the free automatic update to
their existing services resulting in an easier to use, feature enhanced,
streamlined MyFax.

    Among the significant additions is the one-year storage upgrade all MyFax
customers have available to them at no additional change. This new offering
from MyFax, which fully integrates with Microsoft(R) Office, IBM Lotus
Notes(R) and ACT! offers the largest storage capacity in the industry.

    Based the growing needs of businesses using Internet faxing locally,
nationally and internationally, MyFax has incorporated several new tools and
services to improve workflow. These enhancements based on customer
recommendations and input run the gamut from increased file compatibility,
email address and paper options to personalized timestamps, localized phone
numbers and timestamps, fax confirmations that include the original sent
document and simplified logins.

    "The most recent enhancements to MyFax truly catapult the Internet fax
service to a higher, premium standard," said Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus IP
Solutions, the provider of MyFax. "We've taken customer feedback and
incorporated changes that really impact the user experience in a way that
greatly improves how businesses can work smarter and more effectively."

    Additional features to MyFax spring enhancements include:

    Local Phone Numbers: MyFax has expanded coverage of local fax numbers
throughout the continental United States and the United Kingdom. MyFax now
offers over 100 area codes to its customers and will reach close to 90% of the
US population with local fax number options by the end of the year. Vanity
numbers are now also available.

    Setting Your Country Code: MyFax now lets you set your country code as
the default so it is automatically included in the destination number each
time you send a fax. Simplifying the sending process means that your fax gets
to its destination the first time.

    Additional File Compatibilities: MyFax now supports more document file
types. In addition to .TIFF and .PDF files, .JPEG Bitmaps (JPG), Microsoft
Publisher(R), Microsoft Document Imaging(R) (MDI) files, are now supported.

    Email Confirmation Now Includes the Fax: Confusion over fax confirmations
are now an issue in the past. MyFax now includes a send preference that allows
you to opt to include an image of the fax itself in the confirmation success
or failure notice received by email.

    Unsolicited Fax Flagging: Similar to many email programs, MyFax now
allows users to flag unsolicited faxes and report any junk faxes received.
Once junk faxes are flagged, a report is sent to MyFax. MyFax uses the
information from the report to identify and limit junk faxes.

    Select your Time Zone for Local Timestamp: This new feature allows users
to select the time zone used to display all system generated timestamps for
your inbox, outbox, sent faxes and confirmation emails.

    Send Faxes from up to Five Email Addresses: Users now have the option to
enter up to five email addresses from which they can choose to send the fax
from. For example, MyFax users can send one fax from a personal email address
and a separate fax from a businesses email address.

    Default Paper Size Setting: Receiving faxes in Legal (8.5 x 14) or A4
(8.5 x 11.75) sized paper is now an option with the Spring '07 enhancements.
This is especially beneficial to businesses working with international
partners and customers.

    MyFax offers an uncomplicated price structure. The basic service is
$10/month, includes 100 outbound and 200 inbound free faxes and now one year
of fax storage. There is no setup fee and no hidden charges. MyFax price is
based on usage.

    Last month MyFax earned the prestigious Gold Award from "TopTenREVIEWS,"
an Internet publisher of expert technology and entertainment reviews utilized
by millions of consumers. This is the second year in a row MyFax has received
this honor.
