Send and receive faxes from within the StarOffice or OpenOffice.org office suite. eFax is an online fax service that eliminates the need for a fax machine, an extra fax line and all the associated expenses (paper, ink cartridges etc.). You can continue to use your existing fax number or obtain a new number for free. When someone faxes to your number, the fax is displayed in the eFax Messenger solution if it's installed on your computer or the fax is converted to a file and is emailed to you as an attachment. The extension integrates eFax into StarOffice or OpenOffice.org and gives you a free 30-day trial.

If you already have an eFax account you can continue to use your current eFax number, or you can sign-up today to get a new local or toll-free eFax number for a FREE 30-day trial.

eFax is a service of J2global, for more information see the eFax web page

Requires StarOffice 8 (Update 5 or higher) or OpenOffice.org (2.1 or higher)

They should mention that after the free trial and you wish to continue you will need to pay, since they have not I will. so now you know.

They did mention the "30 day Free Trial". This generally means that they give you a 30 day free trial to try it out so that you can decide whether to continue the service with a paid subscription.
