MyFax(TM) Expands Internet Fax Service to Five Additional European Countries

    Company adds new local numbers for France, Italy, the Netherlands,
Finland, and Denmark while expanding in UK

    OTTAWA, September 6 /CNW/ - MyFax(TM), the leading business Internet fax
service, today announced the expansion of its service in Europe. To meet the
demand of businesses - from the smallest to international corporations -
looking to adopt Internet faxing into their business practices, company
officials announced the next phase of its international rollout that includes
additional local phone numbers for cities in France, Italy, the Netherlands,
Finland, and Denmark. MyFax has also expanded its UK presence by adding local
number coverage in Belfast, Bristol, Edinburg, Glasgow, Southampton,
Bracknell, and Durham.

    The addition of local phone numbers in these European cities is expected
to be a boon to large enterprises looking to put a local face on branch
offices as well as smaller businesses that want to maintain their local
identities. MyFax also offers a "free faxing zone" to 39 countries in Europe,
N. American and Asia.

    "MyFax has rapidly established itself as a market leader in North America
and we have an aggressive plan for expanding worldwide," said Joseph Nour, CEO
of Protus IP Solutions, the provider of MyFax. "We're pleased with our early
successes in the UK and very excited with this launch into five additional
European countries."

    Nour added, "Faxing continues to be an important method of business
communication. With this expansion more organizations throughout the U.K. and
Europe will now be able to send and receive faxes faster, more efficiently,
more securely, and at a lower cost. That's a huge benefit to businesses and
their customers."

    The MyFax Internet fax service offers several advantages over traditional
fax machines and enterprise fax servers. One of the primary advantages is
flexibility. Rather than being tied to a single location, MyFax users are able
to send and receive faxes anywhere they can get an Internet connection, either
through their e-mail accounts or via a secure server. Inbound faxes are
delivered directly to the user rather than going to a machine in a common
area, greatly increasing security and privacy.

    MyFax also helps organizations reduce their faxing costs. There is no fax
machine or fax server software to purchase, and no cost for additional phone
lines. Because documents are delivered electronically there's no need to
purchase toner, and paper costs are greatly reduced. Faxes can be delivered to
as many as five e-mail addresses simultaneously, keeping teams of workers
informed about the latest developments. They can also be forwarded easily, and
incorporated into enterprise document management systems without the need to
scan multiple pages. In addition, MyFax will store all faxes online for 365
days at no additional cost, eliminating problems due to lost or misfiled

    Additional benefits MyFax offers its customers include:

    --  Scalability - MyFax scales from home office workers to small, medium
and large businesses

    --  Convenience: MyFax includes an image of the first page of the fax in
the email body.

    --  Image Quality: Both send and receive faxes are exact replicas of the

    --  Browser Support: MyFax supports multiple browsers including FireFox.

    --  System Compatibility: users can use MyFax with the features and
services offered as part of the Microsoft Office 2003/2007, IBM(R) Lotus
Notes(R) and ACT! MyFax offers a free download for Outlook users that provides
a toolbar button for sending faxes.

    --  File Formats: MyFax supports 48 different file formats, including
Microsoft(R) Office, PDF and other common formats.
