Here is a list of the error codes for WinFax

There are several Phases in a normal fax transmission:

Phase A – Establish call (Send and receive Station identifiers, the CSID numbers)

Phase B – Pre-message procedure (determine fax capabilities, set baud rate, etc.)
Phase C – Fax transmisstion
Phase D – Post-message procedure (Message confirmation, End of Page, or multiple signals)

Phase E – Call release(connection closed, send result codes (good or bad)

Each of phase B, C, & D is repeated for each fax page sent.
