Question about Print & Scan in System Preferences

Hello, I'm using an early 2012 13" MacBook Pro, which is running OS X 10.7.5. The Print & Scan option in System Preferences allows a user to receive faxes on their computer; I would like to do this, but I am having difficulty setting this up. These are the boxes I have checked off:

1) Receive faxes on this computer (which allows me to check off the following boxes);
2) Save to (faxes, not shared faxes);
3) Email to (my email address).

I have not checked off the "Print to" box. However, despite doing this, my faxes are still being received on my fax machine (an HP Color LaserJet CM2320).

Am I setting this up correctly? If not, any suggestions as to how to do so?

If this is in the wrong forum section, I ask that the mods please move it to the proper one.

Thanks.

I'm still fiddling with this and trying to figure it out. Is it possible that I can't receive faxes by email because I have wirelessly connected my printer/fax/scanner to my MBP? Maybe I need to have the modem connected directly to my MBP? I don't know. Still waiting for some much needed help. Thanks.

I may be incorrect, but I think to receive faxes, you have to have your Mac connected directly by phone line.
