Is there a particular software I need to send "word" document faxes through the imac to a receiver's fax machine?

I'm new to mac and this is what I use to do on my PC - I so want to get away from using the pc..

I don't want to hook up through my fax/printer machine. I use to be able to send it through the pc with out having a fax machine attached, using an internal modem.

I receive a word doc via email, turn around and fax it through my fax/printer on my pc to the customer. How I do this, is I hit Print on the doc and send it to the "fax" and it sends the fax out. It leaves a log of who I've faxed to (paper trail) which is very important. Also very important is to create an address list in my address book.

I know I need to purchase the external modem (or do I)? Do I need a specific software?

I do not want to hook up to my HP fax machine.

    Of course your computer will need a modem such as the Apple USB modem ($49) and a telephone line connection.
