I need to confirm that a fax was transmitted about 3 months ago. Whenever I print out a "Journal" of Transmitted and Recieved facsimiles, the list always stops short of the week in which I remember sending it. How do I get the machine to spit out a list from the window of time that I want? Is there any other way to confirm that this fax of mine indeed got transmitted?

Re: Jounal Entry Dates
Most machines will only keep a certain amount of transactions in memory. Your fax that you are looking for is probably over the amount of transmissions kept in memory. One suggestion, if the fax was a long distance number, you could check your phone for that number. You also might want to set your machine to print a confirmation report for every fax sent and staple it to your fax for further reference.

The only way to check old transfer info for faxes is by printing out the journal. The way to do this varies from fax to fax, but most often is either with it's own button "reports" (and then "fax journal"), or by choosing "print reports" in the regular menu.
The journal is emptied during power outs, so if you have had a power failure since, you cannot get the information.
Additionally, the only info you will get from this is to where/from where the fax was sent, and if it was successful. Any information on the actual fax content is unavailable.
