Fax Sending error

Specs: Windows 3.1
I live in Italy and I can not send faxes via an external modem serial analogue of the U.S. Robotics and I tried everything, I can receive but not send faxes. Reading forums the problem should lie in the correct modem initialization string suitable for my isp, Fastweb. The strange thing is that I can send faxes only to subscribers who have signed up for the Fastweb Fax service through email, but as I have the modem, I refused to accept this service in advance because my intention is to send faxes via the PC with the modem.
Then I borrowed from a friend a serial fax modem of an unknown brand, I think CirrusLogic, and strangely faxes are sent without problems.
What interests me is the right initialization string modem USRobotics suitable for Fastweb that nobody can tell me, nor Fastweb customer care, nor even the Italian Fastweb USRobotics.
I'm going crazy for days, I add that I have already set the baud rate to that recommended by Fastweb that is 9600bps. I do not know what else to do. I am using different programs as Cheyenne Bitware or WinFax Pro but I have always the same problem in sending faxes.

If the 'Cirrus Logic' sends faxes without problems, it may be that the modem you want to use is not compatible with Windows 3.x. When working with OS's this old, sometimes you need to accept limited hardware choices. For example, my Netgear MA401 wireless 802.11b PC Card is the only laptop PCMCIA card that was ever made with Windows 95 support. So I accept that I cannot use a 802.11 "G" card with my Windows 95 laptop.

What interests me is the right initialization string modem USRobotics suitable for Fastweb that nobody can tell me, nor Fastweb customer care, nor even the Italian Fastweb USRobotics.

I couldn't locate FastWeb's website, but asking for assistance with a 19-year-old OS is going to have challenges. Do they support Windows 3.x? Does anyone who is familiar with Windows 3.x still work at the company?
