    According to MS. After you have installed fax services, and are in the process of sending a fax, you are supposed to get a FAX status icon in your system tray.

    So anyway, not worrying about that, I attempted to send a fax, and the number listed happened to have an answering machine on it.

    I could not find a way to tell XP to hang-up, short of pulling the phone line out of the wall.

    Now it keeps attempting to re-send the FAX !
    No pending faxes appear in my fax monitor screen, and the afore mentioned fax icon in the system tray is still not there even after rebooting

    I believe I have followed all of the rules, but I still get no FAX status icon.

    Has anyone gotten XP's built in fax to work correctly ?

    ain't there a way in control panel, printer & fax, to delete the job?

    You would think, wouldn't you.
    I can go to he properties of the FAX, which brings up the Fax monitor, showing incoming and outgoing faxes, however nothing is there.

    It's like a phantom fax.
