Having a PC provides several ways for you to stay in contact. Most PCs include a modem or a fax modem. With a fax modem, you can use the Windows XP accessories programs to send and receive faxes.
With a regular modem or a fax modem and an Internet mail provider, you can send and receive e-mail. To handle this type of correspondence, you can use the mail program, Outlook Express, included with Windows XP. Note that you do not use Outlook Express for faxing.
