Yes, it's called "e-mail".  ;-)

Alternatively you can sign up for "jfax" (jfax.net) where you get a phone
number that people can fax to which results in an e-mail being sent to
you with the contents of the fax.  Surely you aren't asking if somone
can use a telephone to call your IP address and expect a fax to answer?

 Blaming the software quality on the tool is like saying "I can't pick up
 chicks because my car isn't cool enough."  -- Sean Reifschneider, 1998
