There wasn't much this top-notch fax application lacked when we looked at it last   ; May 2003), but we did want confirmation pages, fax history logs, and a better way to organize send and receive faxes. Version 3.0 scratches all these items off our wish list, but it also calls to mind a few more features we'd like to see in the future.

Page Sender's new confirmation pages can be set to automatically print every time you send a fax and to display the time and date your fax was sent, as well as the fax number to which it was sent. They also include an image of the first page of the faxed document. The program also provides a fax history log -- a printable list that can be filtered by date and that displays every document you've sent or received during the selected period. Unfortunately, this list can't be sorted and you can't display just a list of the faxes that failed or transmitted -- both limitations in an otherwise excellent feature.

The program now allows you to create folders for organizing documents you've sent or received, but Page Sender currently lacks the ability to automatically drop a document in a specific folder when it's received. While it's simple enough to move the documents manually, this is definitely something we'd like to see in a future release.
