My name is David.

By default the printer will print an error report if the machine is not successful in sending a fax.

The printer can also automatically print a fax confirmation report each time a fax is sent by configuring the following on the LCD panel:

First select Fax Settings then select Auto Print Settings then select TX Report then select "Print for each TX"

Please let me know if you need further assistance. Also, please provide a positive rating if you are satisfied with the service.
