Sending a fax directly from computer using Canon Pixma MX 310
Can I use the Canon MX 310 as a modem/fax machine directly from my MacBook? I have no phone port in the computer. I need to send faxes to people who cannot or will not accept attached pdf?
Must I buy a usb modem? Can I just use the fax in the printer?

If your Canon MX-310 has been set up to print faxes as they are received, then what is actually in memory is a "received fax report". If you select a particular fax in this report, it will print the first page of the fax to remind you of the content.
Your Canon MX-310 will store fax documents in memory if:
There are two buttons on the MX310... one for colour and one for black & white.. Depending on which mode you're using (ie: copy, fax, etc..) these buttons will copy, fax, etc...in either colour or black & white accordingly.
These buttons are located on the far right of the control panel with colour closest to the user, black & white above that and then the stop button above and right.
To fax in black & white (or mono as it's otherwise called) just choose the Fax mod, then press the Black button and you're away...
it's very important to connect your MX 300 with the telephone line the right way! Please read once more the part "Preparing the machine for fax" in the chapter "Faxing" of the MX 300 User's Guide and mind the hint "Important: Do not connect the machine and external devices in parallel to the same telephone line using a splitter (A). The machine may not operate properly."
your answering machine is probably picking up the calls before the fax try to use a separate number for the fax or just disconnect the answering machine and get someone to send a test fax to see if it works
