I have never pressed that button! Really, I don't know what it does!

As far as how I use it: I just open it when I need to send a fax, select the
ps file I want to send, type the number and click on send. Same for
receiving, I just click on receive when the phone is ringing. 

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Maybee a efax mailing list?
