18. That doesn't have the same legal status as a FAX.
I know, I know - they are both image file formats. The best justification I've heard is that there is verifiable third party record (phone bill) that coincides with the time stamp on the FAX printout (generated on the receiving end). Yes, that depends on the clock being set correctly.

Still, a FAX is a legal document, same as original signature unless it needs to be notarized. An image file is simply not, even if it is sent by e-mail. That's been a long-standing rule.
