Internet Fax

Unwelcome faxes

I recently switched my subscription for my fax and phone lines to New T&T.

Since then I have received up to five metres of junk faxes per day.

On one Sunday last month, I got 52 junk faxes.

Unwelcome faxes

I recently switched my subscription for my fax and phone lines to New T&T.

Since then I have received up to five metres of junk faxes per day.

On one Sunday last month, I got 52 junk faxes.

There is no point any more replacing the fax paper, as it will be used up overnight by this junk.

Training your office network support pays

I installed a computer system in my office with a server and 10 workstations in March last year. The vendor is now ripping me off each time somebody comes over when a computer is down. They charge me $800 per hour.

Slow modem will do the trick

I refer to the letter headlined, 'Junk fax nightmare' (South China Morning Post, March 21).

Solving junk fax headache

I refer to the letter headlined, 'Junk fax nightmare' (South China Morning Post, March 21).

I used to have the same problem as your correspondent, so I connected my fax line to a computer.

E-mail waits to cure overkill

The lack of integrity of e-mail, the disrespect for faxes and cheap treatment dished out to electronic images have been overlooked in the rush to supposed 'less-paper' offices.

If you are an average wearied and semi-wired office worker who deals with the outside world, you might get a dozen or more items of e-mail a day.

Hanging on the phone in Soho

Working in a Soho (small office/home office) environment may be lonely, but it does have its advantages. For a start, with no one else around to cause distractions, you tend to get more work done.

Legislation needed to stem tide of junk faxes

I read with interest the letter headlined, 'Assumption' (South China Morning Post, June 26) concerning Wharf Cable's attitude towards its customers and how, by default, the company abrogated its clients' right to privacy.

I wholeheartedly agree with Francis Tse Sai-cheong's comments.

More than a simple fax

ONE day the perfect office machine will be invented that will handle all the things we want: faxing, printing, copying, scanning and making coffee. Until then we will have to deal with things like the Lumina Series 2000.

No concern about louts who send faxes all night

I READ with interest the dissatisfaction of customers with Hongkong Telecom's fax service (Letters to the editor, Business Post, July 20).

My complaint is not in the same vein as those letters, but rather covers the company's inability to stop, or even attempt to stop, unwanted faxes.
