Many thanks for this input. I think this raises a very important question
for IPP-FAX. The PART 68 requirement is very specific to Telephone facsimile
machines, and applicability to Internet facsimile is not obvious. Indeed,
PART 68 is only applicable to telephone communications and interface.
So far as I can see, T.37 has no mention of date/stamping, other than a
requirement that offramp gateways "Ensure that local legal requirements
relating to facsimile transmissions are met". This again applies to
Have any date/stamping practices been established for T.37 implementations
in anticipation of legal requirements being set?
Attached is the legal requirements on classic fax in FCC68,
during the discussion at Maui meeting.

(d) Telephone facsimile machines; Identification of the sender of

in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the
