When you send a fax to email there are several types of confirmations.
If the fax went through properly, you should receive a confirmation from firstname.lastname@example.org saying, "Fax Delivery Successful".
If the fax failed to go through, you will receive an email from email@example.com with some form of error code which can be used to troubleshoot.
If you receive a Busy(486), it means the destination returned a busy tone to the fax sent. Try sending the fax again later.
If you receive a Not Accepted Here, it means the destination you faxed to does not accept T.38 Fax Media. Verify this is the correct fax number and try again.
