Nice try, but it won't let you do it, will it?
Kind of frustrating, since you thought that way you might get around the cost of new cartridges, no? Here's the brother support site if you really want to delve into it. But I don't thin so.
You can, on the other hand, send a fax from your computer over the fax/modem, if the document you want to send is already in the system somehow. If you need to scan it in with that same printer you're probably out of luck. But if you have an installed fax modem and are hooked up to a phone line, you can use Word or the modem software to configure and send faxes.
Good luck. There's alway Kinkos, I guess.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
