How can I send faxes from online from my i Mac instead of from just my printer/fax/scanner

a HP all-in-one Phoyosmart C6180


I would like to do as I did with windows, see a fax log and be certain the fax went thru OK

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    There are two ways to send faxes directly from a Mac.


    One way is to use a USB phone modem such as the USRobotics USR5637. You set it up as a printer in the Print & Scan preference pane. One caveat: sharing the modem over a network doesn't work. Obviously, you need a phone line to do this.


    The other way is to use an Internet fax service such as j2.com. You email the document to a server, and it's faxed to the recipient. A phone line isn't needed. This method is no more private than email, which is to say, not private at all.
