VoIP is *supposed* to support analog FAX, but it's a crapshoot, 
especially for outbound calls.  It's hard to make it work well so many 
providers just don't bother.  Usually folks just switch to an eFAX 
service of some kind, which receives FAXes for you and forwards them as 
PDFs via email.

I've used CallCentric before, and they offer FAX reception.  I hear 
voip.ms has dedicated FAX numbers.
