Can a handwritten note be faxed? Someone claims they sent me such a fax but I did not receive it. Thanks.

Of course it can. Anything that can be put onto a piece of paper can be faxed.

This would depend on the fax machine. Normally you can fax anything that is on a 8x11 sheet of paper. Now if the fax is coming from a computer then no it can't fax a hand written paper unless that paper was scanned first.

Thats the way it is normally done these days, scanners are common enough. Anyone using fax on a computer is likely to have a scanner as a matter of routine.

If you have the software to convert a graphic image to a fax image you can send a mouse drawn message as a standard fax.

Facsimile is normally a way to scan paper and send it over some
media.

They may have sent it either to your system or to some other -
persons or to nowhere.

Have them produce the acknoledgement they should have
showing they did send it on that day and to your system.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Thanks folks! The fax is coming from an all-in-one HP printer/copier/fax machine(HP Office Jet 7310) so I don't think it needs to be scanned first, like it would if you were using the XP Fax Client. I'm thinking the papers being faxed may not have been queued up correctly.
