Trying to get the status of faxes appears to work if I go through the call log but not the message store

I'm using the C# SDK. It appears that I can get everything back when I call the CallLog, but if I go through the messagesStore, I always get back 0 records. I'm assuming I should be going through the messageStore and not the call logs?

My goal is to build a portal to show people which faxes did not success.

Here's what I'm doing:

ListMessagesParameters parameters = new ListMessagesParameters();

String[] myTypes = new String[1]
myTypes[0] = "Fax";
parameters.messageType = myTypes;
RingCentral.GetMessageList response = await rc.Restapi().Account().Extension().MessageStore().List(parameters);

This returns 0 records.

But this returns everything about the faxes (those that didn't make it, busy signal, etc.)

var callLogResponse = await rc.Restapi().Account().CallLog().List(new ReadCompanyCallLogParameters



action: "Outgoing Fax"

Never mind, I think I figured it out, if you don't put dates in it returns nothing.
